18th-century style tripod table

18th-century style tripod table

£0.00Price

Solid mahogany tripod tip-top table on simple column, with a 'birdcage' support allowing the table to rotate.

  • The top is made of two joined pieces of mahogany with good figuring.  There is a section of the upper column with an old loss.  While all the parts of the table appear to be 18th century, many of this type of table were 'improved' in the early-mid 20th century and replacement parts substituted where older parts had become damaged. 

     

    This table has clearly had some attention in the past, hence '18th-century style' as we have not been able to determine which, if any, of the parts of the table have been restored/remade in the past. In our opininion, the column support and table top with birdcage mechanism are probably 18th century, but it is likely the tripod legs have been replaced at some point in the last 100 years, as each leg is made of two pieces of mahogany joined together, rather than a single piece.  This, however, does not detract from its attractiveness and usefulness as a small side table.
