Here is a fine quality antique English George III oak occasional side table, circa 1780, displaying a lovely mellow honey colour, in excellent condition. A table of this type would have been made for simple country dwelling. The table incorporates a twin-plank moulded edge, above a single working drawer. The drawer incorporates an old replacement brass handle and back plate, which was probably added during the early Victorian period. The pine-lined drawer is constructed with hand dovetail joints and the drawer is finished with a scribe-moulded front. The drawer runs smoothly and closes flush to the frame. The table displays a simple frieze below the drawer, decorated with shaped corner blocks, raised on four chamfered block legs. The table features the original top and backboard to the rear; the frame has been constructed in the traditional joined manner for that period. The item is solid in joint and ready to use.
This item features a lovely mellow honey colour. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
