A lovely quality table of typical design from the late regency and early Victorian period.
This table is early enough that it retains the highly desired pull out mechanism for opening and closing it which is generally regarded as better than the winder mechanism which was used throughout the rest of the 19th century.
The top is superbly figured and it is lovely that it retains it's two original leaves which is most unusual.
The functionality of a table like this is unparalleled as it can be used at a whole variety of different sizes with no leaves in, one leaf in, or two leaves in.
Another advantage of this design is that there is just the 4 corner legs which allow maximum flexibility in terms of chair and human leg positioning without the extra table legs getting in the way.
There is no structural damage to speak of and clearly the table has been well used, but also well loved over the many years of it's life so far.
What great value for such a beautiful and functional piece of furniture that is not far shy of 200 years old!
