A fine and unusual Georgian reading and writing table in mahogany. The table stands on a tripod base with beautifully shaped legs terminating in spade feet. The central baluster column is finely turned in solid Cuban mahogany. The top serves two functions both a writing service and reading lectern. The top lifts to be secured at various angles for reading and can be laid flat for writing, the interior would be for papers etc. There are two retractable candles stands situated on either side. The whole is beautifully veneered using quality figured mahogany and it has a great untouched patina and colour. The leather service is the original and as such has worn almost away, it has a wonderful patina and a great faded country house loom. The whole is a wonderful piece of late Georgian furniture in excellent condition, and would work well as a side or lamp table. C.1810.
