Antique work box / sewing table made of a choice cut of oak with crossbanding made of top quality rosewood. This is a very rare combination of timbers and especially for this period. Bear in mind that this is not vernacular piece and neither was it made in a Victorian factory. This is a precision made Regency piece of furniture with hand cut dovetails typical of the pre Victorian period. This table has two drawers as well as the bottom deep sampler drawer. The top drawer has a sliding and lift out tray with dividers for different threads or implements. The sampler drawer has a very clever locking mechanism which prevents it from opening if the middle drawer is not open. The reverse of this table is finished with oak and crossbanding to make it totally freestanding.
