Original Brass Paw Feet

(Calamander is an extremely valuable wood which was originally found in
India, Sri Lanka and South East Asia. It has a contrasting hazel-brown
colour with black grain. It is a dense, heavy wood that became so popular
it’s been logged to extinction over the last few hundred years and is generally
now not available to purchase in its raw state. This of course makes antique
furniture pieces which have been constructed from it even more valuable
and special due to their ever increasing rarity. 

This wonderful table also retains a trade label and original purchase invoice
from the famous London furniture specialists “Norman Adams Ltd” who dealt
at the very top end of the English trade for around 8 decades, finally closing their
doors for business in around 2009. According to the original invoice the table
was purchased from then in May 1959 for the then princely sum of £145. What a
lovely piece of history and provenance to go alongside this beautiful table!)
