Here is a fine quality antique English George III oak occasional side table, circa 1790, displaying a lovely rich deep colour, in excellent condition. A table of this type would have been made for simple country dwelling.

Below is a single working drawer, which boasts further cross banding, as well as cock beading, to the front. The drawer is hand dovetailed and oak lined, featuring old replacement period brass handles and escutcheons, which were probably added during the Victorian period. The drawer runs smoothly and closes flush to the frame. The table is raised on four canted legs.
