A very good quality and exceptionally well matched pair of George III period mahogany Bedside Night Tables, or Tray Top Commodes.

Having very well figured shaped gallery tops with pierced handles above tambour doors and converted pull out drawers raised on square chamfered legs.

These are a great example of the stereotypical Georgian bedside night table. They have almost certainly been produced in the same workshop with nearly identical construction and just some very minor differences between them, as is often the case with these objects.

Certainly we regularly see matched pairs of these that are nowhere near as similar as these ones and these are probably the closest you will get to a matching pair without paying out for a much more significantly expensive "true pair" which are also very rarely found. 

They continue to prove an extremely popular option for bedside tables due to their relative sturdiness (especially when compared to various other bedside options), the storage they are able to offer and the tray type tops which make it much less likely items perched on top will get knocked over.
