The generously proportioned stained oak hall or console table raised on square block legs on shaped feet with carved stage gallery back formed as a scallop shell flanked by scroll carved mouldings survives from the early Victorian period.

The condition of the table is good with no areas of concern, nor signs of any repairs, restoration or worm. There are some areas of uneven staining and a few small knocks whilst the gallery back is very slightly unstable. The whole is certainly sure and stands true. We have given the piece a professional wax.

Early Victorian furniture still had elements of Regency and William IV with curved backs and some scrolled or reeded decoration as we see here in the galleried back.

An imposingly attractive table of bold masculinity, perfect for the entrance hall, with just the right amount of detailing; symmetrical and balance personified.
