Unusual Mid-19th Century English Tilt-top Mahogany Breakfast Or Centre Table For Sale
UNUSUAL MID-19th CENTURY ENGLISH TILT-TOP MAHOGANY BREAKFAST OR CENTRE TABLE, POSSIBLY FROM CHANNEL ISLANDS This beautiful tilt-top mahogany breakfast or centre table dates to the mid-19th century and is English. It was possibly made in the Channel Islands, which are situated in the southern portion of English Channel off the coast of Normandy. The round top has an unusual scalloped or wavy edge with a recessed wavy-edge apron. It stands on a elegantly acanthus carved column ending in a triangular platform base with three large carved paw feet and concealed casters. The table measures 50”dia. x 18-¼”h. Condition: The table has the expected minor wear, rubbing to the finish, dings and scratch commensurate with its age. There has also been a couple minor repairs to the carving on the base and feet. As can be seen in the photographs, the top is made of two pieces of mahogany joined together in the middle. Over the years the two pieces have separated approximately 1/8” (0.3 cm). When flat this small gap is hardly noticeable. If desired, the buyer could easily have this corrected by have a skilled workman separate the two top pieces from the braces underneath, placing them closer and then reattaching them to the braces. We have not done this as we wanted to leave the piece in its original condition. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the piece is in very good condition given its age and use. Please examine the photographs carefully for a full and complete understanding of the piece's condition. We encourage you to view enlargements of the photographs, particularly those with multiple images, and let us know of any questions you may have.SHIPPING: THE BUYER CAN EITHER PICK UP THE PIECE LOCALLY OR MAKE HIS OR HER OWN ARRANGEMENTS FOR SHIPPING.WE WILL BE HAPPY TO PROVIDE REASONABLE ASSISTANCE TO THE BUYER IN THIS REGARD AND CAN RECOMMEND POSSIBLE SHIPPERS UPON REQUEST.SEVERAL OF OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE BEEN VERY PLEASED WITH THE SERVICES PROVIDED BY TSC MOVING COMPANY, WHICH CAN BE REACHED ON THE INTERNET,AND THE UPS STORE, LOCATED AT 550 ADAM STREET, QUINCY, MA.
