While there is nothing extraordinary about this mahogany tilt top table—no fancy, carved edge or claw and ball feet—there is nothing particularly ordinary, either. The top is just the right thickness for the diameter and the pedestal is weighted perfectly for both. Simple design and execution, along with a wonderful, rich brown mahogany make this table suitable for a small center hall or large living room.

English, mahogany tripod tilt top table with dish edge. Unique pedestal with solid stretcher defines this normally ubiquitous table as something out of the ordinary.

Mahogany Tilt Top Table
England. Circa 1820.
This is a superb example of an English mahogany drum table. The handsome grain has achieved an incredible patina--the rich, warm tone of the wood is barely captured in this photograph--one must see this table in person to truly appreciate the color. The flame grain on the drawer fronts and the scroll carving of the feet are exemplary; combined with the pleasing proportions, these add up to make this a very desirable table.
