A Very Good Quality George III Period Mahogany Folding Dumb Waiter Having
Two Well Figured Circular Tiers United By Gun Barrel Turned Centre Column
Terminating On Elegant Tripod Legs With Original Brass Castors
( Antique dumb waiters, sometimes referred to as buffet's were made to be used
in a dining room for storing the food about to be served. Often the dumb waiters
made in pairs for large houses and they appear to have first started being used
around the mid 19th century. After dinner, when the ladies retired to a different
room the dumb waiters would be placed at either end of the table laden with drink
so that the gentlemen could help themselves easily enough throughout the rest
of the evening. This example is particularly unusual with its folding sides allowing
it to be used in such a huge variety of different places around the modern home
without sacrificing a†huge amount of real estate so to speak.)
