A Very Good Quality Late Regency Period Rosewood Circular Occasional Table Of Unusual Design, Possibly Originally Designed For Storage Of Wool, Having Two Well Figured Circular Tiers With Elegant Spindle Turned Galleries United By Turned Central Column Terminating On Triform Base With Original Turned Feet.
This charming little 19th century occasional table is of a very unusual design, with the two well figured tiers acting as both table tops and baskets. We have occasionally seen tables of similar design to this previously and the basket effect is sometimes believed to have been designed for the storage of wool whilst knitting.
Constructed from good quality and well figured rosewood veneers the table retains a good rich colour and would make a very useful little wine table, or even lamp table indeed. It has real elegance and has clearly been well loves and looked after throughout the near 200 years of its life. From a practical perspective it is also very solid and sturdy.
As with all of the items we offer for sale this little table has been examined and naturally waxed in the traditional manner by our highly skilled restorers to ensure it is presented for sale in a condition which allows it to be placed straight into the home.
