Description & Technical information

The table has survived in remarkable untouched condition and has acquired an outstanding mellow patina. The tip-up top is supported by bearers with unusual shaped ends, and pivots on a birdcage action which retains the original wedge.
The attention to detail, the quality of the wood and the care with which it was selected are all testament to the exceptional craftsmanship of its maker. The fact that the table has also survived in such good condition is particularly fortunate.
