Object Description

This is a very fine quality antique sofa table which must have cost a fortune as a new order. It would be hard to find anything lacking in any area at all, this table has it all. From the top down, it has the best quality mahogany top that we have seen in a long time, the colour, grain pattern and patina of the timber used for the top can be described without any exaggeration as exquisite. There are wonderful large handles with traces of the original gilding, the drawer linings are mahogany, the dove tails are perfect, the drawers and frieze are narrow and the dummy drawers to the reverse look just like the real ones. The end support is beautifully drawn with ninety degree curve at the base and with three tuned spindles which is straight out of the Gillow book (ask for details). There is brass inlay on both the outside and the inside of the end supports, there are two knuckle joints at each end to support the leaves and there are strengthening supports hidden up underneath to keep the ends supports in place. We consider ourselves very lucky to have this sofa table in our little shop and it is a good enough piece to fit in in any of the finest country houses in the land.
