Description:
Here is a fine quality antique English George II solid elm occasional lowboy side table, circa 1740, displaying a lovely mellow colour and grain configuration, in excellent condition. The table incorporates a twin-plank top, with a moulded edge and indented corners, above two working drawers, incorporating later period brass swan neck handles & shaped escutcheons. The pine-lined drawers are constructed with fine hand dovetail. The left-hand drawer retains its original working lock, with working key, while the right-hand drawer has a faux keyhole. The drawers run smoothly and close flush to the frame. Below the drawers is an elegant shaped frieze. The table stands on four tapering legs, which terminate on pad feet. The table retains the original top and backboard to the rear; the frame has been constructed in the traditional manner (peg joint) for the period. Ideal for use a side table in a hallway, or even a small writing desk. The desk is solid in joint and ready to use.

Condition Report:
This table is in excellent condition. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges, drawer fronts and top, but nothing significant considering the age of the item (see photos). The table has been French polished by hand, to a professional standard in our workshop, therefore the colour and patination are stunning. The drawers are in good working order; they retain the original drawer linings, close flush to the frame and the left-hand drawer retains its original working lock, with working key. The drawers feature old period replacement brass handles and escutcheons. The table features the original top and backboard to the rear. Restoration to the pad feet. As the table boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic rich colour and patination. This table is well constructed, solid in joint and ready to use.
