Made of mahogany......beautiful rich natural patina......from circa 1840.......barley twist central support columns.... Lions Paw feet (more reminiscent of Regency and William IV Styles) on tripod base with original brass castors.......beautiful scroll work to the front with acanthus leaf as the central motif.
The table opens to reveal a green baize card table and hidden drawer for cards, counters etc.
Card Tables were very important to people in the 18th and 19th Centuries.......they had no TV or Internet and their main sources of entertainment were playing cards, music, dancing and story-telling.
Most card tables were made to be simple but functional. They did not 'skimp' on the quality of wood, however. Hence some beautiful mahogany and rosewood examples.
What makes this one stand out is not only the quality of the mahogany used....probably the finest Cuban mahogany.....but the detail to the base......it oozes QUALITY !!
Probably British but found in Ireland.
The central leaf motif is reminiscent of the use by top Irish makers of the use of scallop shells as a central motif.
