Physical description

Circular occasional table, in Sheraton style. The top is of solid flame-grained mahogany with satinwood cross-banding. The interior edge of the crossbanding is edged with ebony stringing and two bands of boxwood stringing. The edge of the top is bevelled. The mahogany frieze is inlaid with satinwood cross banding, the upper border of which is edged with ebony and boxwood stringing. The table is supported on tapered mahogany legs, the tops of which feature rectangular boxwood stringing above cockbeading. The outward face of each tapered leg is also decorated with boxwood stringing.

The leg terminates with a spade foot with highly abbreviated brass sabots attached to brass castors. The legs are joined by a curved x-shaped mahogany stretcher, with a central turned urn with a pendant drop. The urn is of a slightly darker wood than the stretcher. The stretcher is attached to each leg with a metal platelet and two screws. The top of the stretcher is decorated with boxwood stringing. There is some pitting to the top of the table, as well as scratches and some discolouration to satinwood crossbanding on top of the table. White and grey paint on bevelled edge and legs.
