A mahogany Portable Table by Drew & Sons.
The details ‘Drew’s Patent No. 14010 Piccadilly Circus W.’ is stamped to one of the brass strips to the end of the table. The legs fold as pairs, with notches cut to the legs so that the hinged brass fixing struts can pass them easily. The top has two leaves that fold out to double its size whilst also reducing the table’s height by half an inch when doing so. The leaves are held by 3 strong hinges, visible when the top is extended.
This is a useful table that could be taken on a picnic or used in a tent with Drew conscious of its wide appeal. Circa 1900.
The full size is given.
