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.

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.

Pair of antique French carved walnut armchairs upholstered in a Swedish linen fabric. They are top quality, structurally sound, in good original condition & I would date them to around the 1910 period. The walnut frames are intricately carved all over. Please enlarge all the images to see all the fine details. These chairs have just been polished & upholstered, with double piping plus new feather cushions.

Antique Colonial Style Extending Danish Dining Table

Very useful & practicable large circular extending dining table that I believe is either Danish or Swedish. The wood looks to me like cherry or walnut & the table top is all segmented. It's wonderful quality & extends in a very clever way. If you take an enlarged look at all the images, you will understand how it works. The four extensions rest on the pull out supports & also clip together. They all have brass edges, which add a nice look. The base also has a lovely design, with four strong legs joined by cross stretchers at the base & more 'X' shaped stretchers on the sides. This table has a wonderful design which would fit in antique or contemporary settings. It's a unique piece & I certainly haven't seen anything like it. I would say it's about 50 years old & it's in great condition. This table will seat 10 people comfortably when fully extended, because it has a diameter of over 2 metres. There are not many round dining tables out there that will do that.
