Antique 18C Georgian elm and fruitwood tilt top side occasional supper table.
This is a fantastic piece of elm country furniture that is very rare and hard to find.
Elm is a wood similar to oak, however it usually has a lighter colour, with a very distinctive character, appearance and grain pattern.
A lovely piece of antique furniture of with the huge sense of age that only period elm can give.
With a great colour, age and patina, this table has an attractively turned stem with a characterful tripod base.
Better than most.
Solid with no loose joints and the tilt mechanism works ok.
Would look great in the right location.
Dimensions: Overall 770mmL x 580mmW x 740mmH.
There are loads of historic knocks, marks, cracking, scratches, repairs and alterations, as is to be expected for this type of antique furniture. There have been historic repairs /alterations to the tripod base and there is some metal strapping underneath (but it is all solid now). There is distortion in the top and base as is usual and adds to the charm of this piece. There is a later catch. The top has been recently refinished, but it retains much of its character and patina. There are some historical wood worm holes that have been treated for good measure....this is to be expected with elm.
