Antique Victorian Inlaid Walnut Occasional Table

Exquisite small antique Victorian occasional table with some lovely original features, so please enlarge all the images. The octagonal top is burr walnut, with inlays plus cross banding of satinwood, ebony & amboynas. The turned walnut legs are fluted & have some lovely carved out detail towards the bottom. There are also decorative cross stretchers joining the legs which have the original porcelain casters with gilt fittings above. This table is in lovely original condition & I would date it to around the 1840-60's period.

Antique Victorian Inlaid Rosewood Envelope Card Table

These tables are referred to as 'envelope card tables' for obvious reasons. This one is antique Victorian in rosewood, with lots of intricate fine inlays of many different woods. The top is twisted around up to the point where the envelope part lifts up slightly in the middle, enabling the flaps to be flipped open & to rest on the corner edges which support their weight. It's a very clever mechanism, which seems to be unique to these card tables made in the late Victorian & Edwardian period. This cad table has many other decorative features. There are insets inside the flaps which show when opened that I think were designed for holding money or chips & they seem to be lined in maple or satinwood. The playing surface is baize lined. The inlaid tapered legs have original porcelain casters & there is a platform underneath that's joined by stretchers. There is also a drawer with original brass handles. Please enlarge all the images, because there are so many interesting features.

Antique French Marquetry Inlaid Bureau Plat Desk

Very impressive curvaceous antique French style 'Bureau Plat' writing table or desk, which I would date to around the 1920's period. It's wonderful quality, with loads of fine marquetry & inlays of many exotic woods on the top, back, sides & drawer front. It also has very bold classical gilt mounts on the tops of the legs, plus more gilt mounts, handles, top edge & feet. The wood, not counting the marquetry & inlays looks like predominately King Wood. This piece looks great from all angles, because it's finished off the same all over, with excellent shaping. There is one drawer to the front & the back has the form of the drawer. This table has just been French polished, so is in great condition & it looks as though it's just come out from a palace in Versailles.

Large Very Impressive Antique Burr Walnut Partners Desk

This antique partners pedestal desk has to be the best model I've ever had. It's absolutely stunning & fabulous quality too. I can't possibly list all the incredible feature, but I'll try a bit, so please enlarge all the images to see for yourselves. I would date it to around the 1890-1910 period. It's burr walnut, figured walnut & solid walnut, plus it has the original brass handles. There is a shaped tooled leather writing surface & there are pull out leather topped slides on either side. The top section has convexed ends all the way around, including the drawers. It has beautifully shaped burr walnut panels on the outside & inside the pedestal. All the edges are curved & it sits on ogee bracket feet. There are drawers to the front, plus a single drawer on the top section of the back & cupboards below, with shelves inside. The burr walnut is really tight & the drawers are finely dovetailed. This desk also has a lovely original colour & comes apart into three sections. I don't think it's quite sitting together perfectly in the images, which is why you may spot the odd slight gap where the top sits on the pedestals. In fact I can see it's not lined up straight. This desk has just been restored & polished, with locks & keys, so it's in good condition.
