This is a stunning quality antique English Regency mahogany tilt top breakfast dinning table, circa 1830, in excellent original condition. The table boasts a rounded rectangular top, with a reeded moulding. The table also boasts its original working brass latch, which allows the tabletop to be tilted vertically for storage and to show off the lovely grain configuration on the top, or removed for easy transportation. A sprung locking mechanism on the underside of the table locks the top in place when it is folded to the vertical position. The table is raised on a central ring turned, reeded column, which terminates on four splayed, reeded legs. The legs rest on the original lion’s paw castor cups and brass castors.
The table can accommodate between 4 – 6 persons and is sufficiently tall enough to comfortably fit your knees underneath. It is also sufficiently wide enough to accommodate serving dishes in the centre of the table.
The table boasts a rich mahogany 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.
This table would look superb in a variety of rooms from dining room, drawing room or library. The table would certainly grace any home or office and is a great investment, as it is extremely functional. So don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
