This is a fold-over side table......the top swings 90 degrees and opens out into 2 leaves. It also has a space for storage.

The interior table top still retains it stunning original dark patina, whilst the exterior of the table top has aged beautifully and retains a rich red hue with the darker hints of the rosewood grain striking in its appearance.

The table is supported by a graduating cylindrical central column......to a circular base with turned tulips style ends.

The base sits on 4 exquisitely carved lions paw feet.....GORGEOUS !!!

This is a QUALITY piece and would have adorned a wealthy household only !!!

REGENCY ERA: The Regency in the United Kingdom was a period when King George III was deemed unfit to rule and his son, the Prince of Wales, ruled as his proxy as Prince Regent. On the death of his father in 1820, the Prince Regent became George IV. The term Regency (or Regency era) can refer to various dates with some given a longer period than the decade of the formal Regency which lasted 1811-1820. The period 1795 to 1837 (the latter part of the reign of George III and the reigns of his sons George IV, as Prince Regent and King, and William IV) is oft attributed as the Regency era characterised by distinctive trends in British architecture, literature, fashions, politics, and culture. The Regency era formally ended in 1837 when Queen Victoria succeeded William IV.
