Object Description

A Very Good Quality Late 18th Century Georgian Mahogany Sofa Table, Having Superbly Figured Two Flap Top Bearing Crossbanded Decoration, Over Two Drawers To Frieze Opposed By Dummy Drawers To Reverse, Raised On Elegant Square Tablet End Supports Terminating On Sabre Legs With Original Brass Castors.

Sofa Tables were relatively common throughout the 18th and 19th centuries and as the name suggests they were originally designed to sit behind a sofa, although a common misconception
is that they were meant to butt right up against the sofa itself.

Actually they were normally designed to sit a few feet away from the sofa, hence the false drawers on reverse. That said they also look quite happy pushed right up against the back of a sofa and are such useful, versatile items of furniture.

This particular sofa table is constructed from well figured, good quality, mahogany and has real elegance, which is enhanced by the simplicity of its design. Well constructed, using high grade materials, this item has clearly been produced in a well respected workshop and due to the quality of its materials and construction it remains in excellent clean, functional condition.

As with all of our items this Mahogany Sofa Table has been attended to in the traditional manner at our workshops before being offered for sale, by our highly trained and skilled antique furniture restorers including a light clean and natural wax polish to ensure that it is in retail condition and ready to be placed immediately into the home or workplace.
