The lift-up-and-over top in two sections, each made from one piece of solid timber 1.5cm/5/8in. thick with fine flame figuring, faced with a moulded edge and retaining the original brass hinges.
The frieze is fitted with a small drawer with original brass escutcheon, handle and lock. The drawer retains its original pine linings and is faced with cockbeading.
The frieze has fine flame figured veneers on a pine carcass and the drawer is cut from the same piece so the figuring is consistent. The legs are decorated with reeding. This table has a rich colour and excellent patina.
