Description / Expertise
These card tables are the same model with some minor differences; one has a flame-figured frieze and boxwood escutcheon and the other is slightly larger. It is difficult to source pairs of tables and these came from the same collection. They are very versatile with the fold-over tops which create 4-seater tables when open and serve as consoles or sidetables when closed. They are an unusual, spacious design with the middle back legs which gives them more of a console aesthetic when closed.

Table shown closed at front
The lift-up-and-over top in two sections, each made from one piece of solid timber 1.5cm thick with exceptional flame figuring, faced with a moulded edge and retaining the original brass hinges. The frieze is fitted with a small drawer decorated with a diamond-shaped boxwood escutcheon and a replaced but period brass handle. The drawer retains its original oak linings and is faced with cockbeading. The frieze has fine flame figured veneers on a pine carcass and the drawer is cut from the same piece so the figuring is consistent. The legs are decorated with reeding. This table has a rich colour and excellent patina.

Measures: Length 88 cm., 34.50 in. height 73 cm., 28.75 in. closed depth 43 cm., 17 in., open depth 86 cm., 34 in.
