Here is a fine quality early Victorian mahogany dumbwaiter, also know as a buffet server, constructed from top quality mahogany timbers, circa 1840, in excellent original condition.
The buffet features three tiers, each constructed from single mahogany planks, with gallery up-stands and simple mouldings.

The dumbwaiter terminates on bulbous turned feet, resting on the original brass and mug castors.
The buffet features a superb rich red-brown 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 (it cannot be recreated by re-polishing).
