Mahogany Drop Leaf Sofa Table
England. Circa 1820.
This mahogany drop leaf sofa table from the latter end of the reign of George III incorporates design elements common to the era. The diagonal reeding on the pedestal and the hairy brass "paw" feet are both classic design elements, as is the pedestal form. With two working drawers, this table offers storage, an additional dining area and handsome looks to boot!
Oval Oak Vendange Table
France. Circa 1880.
With its tilting, two board oak top and gentle elliptical shape, this table is just the right size and appearance to take outside for some libation enjoyment. Or it could be re-purposed to duty in a breakfast nook. The possibilities are not endless, but this little table has a lot of potential.
Irish Mahogany Game Table
Ireland. Circa 1790.
This handsome 18th century Irish flip top game table on cabriole legs features a swooping acanthus carving on the knees of the front legs which end in foliate carved pad feet. The back left leg swings to support the open top, itself covered in traditional green felt.
Irish Inlaid Oak Lowboy
Ireland. Circa 1770.
Irish, three drawer lowboy in quartersawn oak with ebony & fruitwood inlays and a unique, open fret apron. The top and drawers are handsomely cross banded in mahogany. Brass bail pulls and escutcheons highlight the dovetailed drawers while a thin moulding defines the base of the apron. A “country formal” piece of furniture if ever there was one.
England. Circa 1790.
A superb example of an English country lowboy, this table appears to be showing its age in the angle of its legs--which seem to be thinking independently as to which direction they would like to go. Some would call this imperfection or defective, but we like to call it "charm." The richly grained elm, combined with the beautiful color and patina, elevate the desirability of this sweet little table.
William IV Satinwood Lamp Table with Slide
United Kingdon. Circa 1830.
William IV satinwood lamp table with slide. Top has 3/4 brass gallery and ebony and boxwood stringing, with round moulded edge over a pullout slide with the original floral embossed silk lining and two brass knob handles. The apron has ebony and boxwood outline stringing. Square tapered legs with ebony spade feet.
Mahogany Adam Style Game Table

This is an attractive, mahogany flip top, Adam style game table on tapered legs ending in spade feet. Flame mahogany is used throughout with satinwood and rosewood bandings delineated by boxwood and ebony stringing. The felt playing surface is banded in rosewood.
Regency Game Table
England. Circa 1830.
Regency mahogany flip top game table on tapered legs has beautifully rounded corners. Attractive string inlay adorns the apron and legs while a rounded beading surrounds the centrally located drawer, which appears to have its original wood knob. Utilizing a swing leg support, the table opens to a near 36"square playing area.
Mahogany Flip Top Game Table
England. Circa 1790.
A solid mahogany George III game table on cabriole legs ending in pad feet. The back left leg swings to support the open top having a felt playing surface. A single oak lined drawer has antique replaced brass swan neck pulls and offers storage space for playing cards and chess pieces.
Walnut Lap Desk on Stand
England. Circa 1860.
This diminutive lap desk was the ultimate in desk portability in its day. Made in beautifully grained walnut and strengthened by brass straps and corner mounts, it conceals a useful interior. Opening it up reveals a dished pen tray flanked by space for inkwells. Beneath the writing slope is a small letter well that also has a “secret” section that hides a pair of small stamp drawers. The stand is new.
Mahogany Game Table
England. Circa 1860.
Constructed of solid mahogany, this flip top game table features a unique scrolled knee and trifid foot. Beautifully grained and bearing a rich, warm patina, this table would serve well as a console in a hall, or as its intended purpose of hosting card and board games.
Walnut Burl Lowboy
England. Circa 1920.
Covered in a deeply figured walnut burl, this shaped front lowboy would do equally as well as a dressing table as it would occasional table or console. With its shell carved knees on cabriole legs ending in pad feet, it has a profile that is as interesting as it is attractive.
George III Inlaid Mahogany Game Table
England. Circa 1780.
One of the best game tables we've seen in some time, this particular table features inlaid bands of satinwood and tulipwood on the top and apron. The delicate carving on the table edge and cabriole legs is exquisite--testament to the skill of the craftsman who created this table. Opening the folding top reveals a set of candle wells and deeply carved guinea cups with a replaced saddle leather playing surface.
Painted Circular Wine Taster Table
France. Circa 1900.
A pale grey painted top on a rustic fruitwood base of typical form give this tilt top table a genuine country look. The paint has some age, but is in good condition. However, it would not be a travesty to repaint the top, since this particular table was most likely originally covered in waxed canvas.
