Antique Round Mahogany Drop Leaf Table
Antique Georgian or early Victorian round mahogany drop leaf gate leg dining or side table. Also it's a demi lune console table. I know, it's a bit of everything, but that's because as well as having a drop leaf which is supported by two hinged legs which swing inward to allow the leaf to fall down, there is also a bolting mechanism which, when undone, allows the leaf to be completely removed, thus leaving a semicircular side or hall table. Simple but elegant design, common to that period; unadorned tapering legs and a plain edged top. Condition isn't too bad; the structure is solid enough, as much as gate legs ever are; the joints are sound. Cosmetically there are plenty of signs of age; scuffs, marks and dinks etc but nothing awful. The worst of it is on the top, unsurprisingly, and then mostly on the front, fixed half, which plainly was used a lot more than the folding half. We've stripped the top of its very worn finish but haven't put a new finish on; it doesn't make a good selling point, looks wise, but you might want to varnish it for water resistance, or shellac and/or wax for a more authentic, though frankly useless, finish. Depends what its function will be. We'll happily wax it for no charge.
Closed Depth 55cm, Leaf Removed Depth 53cm
