George III period oval mahogany antique breakfast table / antique centre table. This table has a central pedestal support with four legs, which we prefer to three, for stability as well as symmetry. The central column and lack of frieze means lots of lovely leg room.
The design of the legs is quite unusual, comprising a flowing reeded design which gives an organic flow to the leg shape. Also unusual is that the reeding is on the sides as well as the top surface of the legs.
The top of the table is remarkable in that it is made of two sheets of mahogany which run the full length of the top and must have been cut from a very large section. The side of the top is also reeded and the edge of the top is crossbanded all around.
