The writing table boasts a stunning figured mahogany top, decorated with satinwood, ebony and mahogany cross-banding and a fine mahogany up-stand to the back of the table, to prevent items falling off the back.

The table is raised on four straight tapering block legs which are decorated with satinwood string inlay and terminate on the original brass castors and collars. The table features the original top and backboard to the rear; the frame has been constructed in the traditional manner for that period. This mahogany side table is solid in joint and ready to use.
