The mahogany tilt-top tripod table of good colour having a rectangular top with canted corners to a well turned bobbin column and down swept feet, surviving from last quarter of nineteenth century England.
The table is structurally sound and stable, with the expected surface wear with a good amount of deep colour and patination to the top and to the bobbin turnings at their extremities. It appears to have been re-polished at some stage in its life. The tilt-top action is original and in working order. The original iron rivet to the base of the column is also in tact. There is a little sloping to the top but it doesn’t affect using it on a daily basis.
Popular from 1830s England, bobbin turning showcased the wood turning skills of craftsmen of the era.
A useful, versatile and sculptural table.
