moreThis is a Gorgeous mid 19th Century Victorian British cylindrical or trumpet sewing table/Box on carved stand with beautiful parquetry inlaid lid/top with chessboard or checkers board design.
The Interior is in great shape with original blue silk lids and decorative paper lining.
Beautifully tripod carved base with padded feet.
Probably used mainly as a sewing accessory but could also have been used for games hence the checkerboard lid.
Made of walnut.
In Victorian times they did not have Netflix, evenings were mainly spent reading, sewing and playing board games and cards. Ladies of elegance would proudly possess and display their sewing boxes. The most common accessory was the sewing box which would hold the Lady's needles, wool, darn, etc. Crochet was the realm of young ladies of style.
All children of 'standing' in Victorian times would do crochet work, hence the abundance of "Samplers" still collected today.
A sewing or games box like this one would have reflected the high social standing of its owner.
These type of tables were obviously 'a cut above' the humble sewing box.
This type of trumpet shaped table had 2 functions:
(1) to act as a sewing box and
(2) to play board games like chess or draughts (checkers) on its lid.
This is a top quality piece. The lid is inlaid with parquetry in the style of a chess board, the parquetry is made of a combination of satinwood, walnut, ebony and boxwood. The chess pattern is intersected with chevron stringing.
Outside the chess board, the lid is inlaid with 4 marquetry inlays of floral motifs scrolling on each side of the board.
The edge of the lid is inlaid with Tunbridgeware style parquetry inlay.
The carving of the central baluster and tripod feet is exquisite in detail and execution. less
