This Regency library table is in good overall condition. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges of the table and to the fine quality leather (see photos) but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The table features a fine quality gold tooled sage green leather. Although not the original leather, there is some age to it and therefore there are old use marks visible (see photos). The turned knobs to the drawers are original, as are the drawer locks, which come with a working key. The drawers are mahogany lined, quarter beaded and hand dovetailed; which is a further sign of quality. The drawers are in good working order and close flush to the frame. The table is raised on later adapted legs, which incorporate rectangular columns, supported by splayed legs, terminate on solid brass lion paw toes and castors – the advertised price reflects this point. This table is solid in joint and ready to use.
