Antique Oak Centre Table with Parquetry Top and Unusal Heavy Brass Lock
This is a handsome centre table which could serve a variety of purposes in any home, it could be used for a lamp at the end of a sofa or for a large vase of flowers in a hallway.
The table is very unusual and is made of solid oak, it is a heavy and solid handmade piece.
The history and origin is a mystery to us and we are unsure of its age but would estimate that it dates to the early 1800s.
Set on bobbin turned legs the table is supported with a moulded stretchered base and is finished with pommel feet.
The table top is inset with decorative geometric inlaid parquetry and to the front there is a single large drawer with heavy brass lock and handle.
There is a a key to lock the drawer, it is a little tricky to remove from the lock.
The wood has a wax polished finish which has a lovely sheen.
The table is in good structural condition with various cosmetic marks of age and use to the polished finish. There are historical repairs to the stretchers and small knocks and water marks to the wood here and there.
It has a nicely aged look.
