The tops boat shaped mirror-matched burr walnut veneers, decorated with satinwood string inlay, with a brass moulded gallery surround. Bellow sits a single drawer decorated with kingwood and satinwood string inlay, featuring its original circular brass knob. The drawers are constructed with dovetail joints which run smoothly and close flush to the frame. The sides of the tables are gracefully curved, with further string inlay. The tables are supported on elegant moulded tapering legs with fine chamfer details, which boast floral brass ormolu cartouche mounts to the top corners, with further brass ormolu moulding below, terminating on moulded brass toe caps.

These bedsides are highly decorative, solid in joint and ready to use.
