Description

Antique mahogany & satinwood sofa table – beautifully faded, figured, matched mahogany and satinwood top supported on well drawn ‘curule’ X framed supports, united by a stretcher.

The top with a broad satinwood margin contained within ebony and boxwood lines with rosewood cross bandings. The frieze contains a cedar lined working drawer with ‘dummy’ front to the reverse.

All of lovely quality.

This versatile high quality antique (Regency period) table can be used as a conventional sofa table, as a library/ writing table, as a dressing table or even as a small supper table.

NB. The ‘curule’ form has its origins in ancient Rome. Seating furniture of this design was reserved for high ranking individuals. Originally chairs of curule form would have been veneered in costly ivory and often hinged for easy transport.

The Regency period in England with its revived interest in classicism produced some excellent furniture of curule form, which is rare and highly sought after by collectors and decorators alike.
