ANTIQUE NUMBER SA1074992: Mahogany Georgian Oval Butlers Tray On Stand

Mahogany Georgian Oval Butlers Tray On Stand

£1,875    $2,431    €2,232
A Good Quality And Elegant Late 18th Century, Georgian Mahogany Oval Butlers Tray, Of Panelled Design, Having Original Brass Hinges And Pierced Handles To Folding Sides, Raised On Later Square Tapered Leg Mahogany Stand.
 
During the 18th and 19th centuries a coffee table was not what we regard as a coffee table in the 21st century. Coffee tables back then were always full height, effectively side tables. The modern, low, coffee table is really something which began to be seen during the early 20th century onwards.
 
Based on the above there is a variety of different methods to incorporate a coffee table into an interior for people who wish to furnish their properties with genuine antique furniture, whilst still allowing for the practicalities and function which is required in modern times.
 
Therefore as is now normal with by far the majority of these butlers trays which we see, due to the fact they make absolutely perfect coffee tables, this has been removed from its original, tall, folding stand at some point and fitted onto a lower, more practical and sturdy stand constructed from old antique wood. It’s worth noting that generally this means an old broken table, or something similar which was destined for the scrapheap or bonfire, has therefore also been recycled and re-purposed.
 
As with all items which we offer for sale this antique coffee table has received a thorough inspection and natural wax polish by our traditional antique furniture restorers before being offered for sale, ensuring that it is in the best, most presentable, retail showroom condition. Overall the condition is good, although its worth noting there is a little historic shrinkage & movement to the wood and hinges which can be seen in the images.
