A mahogany Centre Campaign or Military Portabl;e Table with a single piece top and thumb moulding to the edge.
The 2 pairs of bobbin turned legs are fitted to the underside of the top by hinges so that they can quickly fold when packed. To do so, the middle stretcher bar is lifted up and off. It has a lug to each end which fits to a hole on the end stretchers. The table is well considered with thought given to the bobbin decoration, chamfered edges and turned legs. Its practical to dismantle and a useful size for one to eat or work at or for use as a centre table or to go behind a sofa etc. Early to mid 19th century.
