A delightful and most unusual 18th century Chippendale period mahogany Side Table of unusually large proportion, having superbly figured top with wide crossbanded decoration over three drawers.
Retaining original brass handles raised on square chamfered legs united by elegant pierced wavy cross stretcher.
This fabulous quality table is constructed from a high grade cuban mahogany and the dimensions are most unusual, making it difficult to decide what it's original purpose would have been.
It is however fair to say that it is a most useful, practical and functional item and would suit a variety of different places around the home or office.
It also retains its original brass handles and has a most elegant cross stretcher. Clearly a lot of thought went into ensuring this was not just a plain standard piece of furniture when it was first commissioned and instead had various "extra" features to lift it above many other similar items.
