The drawer features old period replacement brass handles and escutcheons, but retains the original key escutcheon. The table features the original top and backboard to the rear, legs and stretchers. As the table boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic rich colour and patination. This table is well constructed, solid in joint and ready to use.
