Description

A fully fitted Victorian ladies work table raised on a turned centre pedestal terminating with three serpentine supports forming the tripod stable base. The 55cm x 45cm canted box top is ornately decorated with mother of pearl decoration set into the rosewood; creating beautiful flowing foliate and floral sprays with an unusual escutcheon detail. On opening the lid a fitted interior is revealed having a red velvet and silk liner with several compartments, some lidded and some hidden. The interior surprisingly retains many of the original features including glass ware and a necessaire. Being both a sewing table and correspondence table the inner section houses a pen tray and ink bottle, a wood stuffed pin cushion, several glass bottles, a white metal sheathed pair of scissors, thimble and needle case, in addition there are two bone winders and a packet of needles. The inlay is remarkably intact and most of the original French polish is good with just a small section to the lid showing age related ware, a great survivor. The table has a key to secure the privacy and contents; at 69cm tall this is a pretty diminutive ladies table of exceptional quality.
