Condition Report: This is an antique piece with a long history going back about 150 years! This is a superb table of excellent quality mahogany oozing all the charm and character of the period. The table retains all the wooden buttons covering the screws that holds the table top to its frame. In the course of time the wood of the table has split right in the middle and this can be noticed as a line that follows the grain of the wood. The strong and stable wooden brackets at the back keep both half in place and prevent them from moving or separating further. The rim of the top and close to it there are some dents in line with its use and age. There are some scratches on the top confined mainly to one side of the table top. The veneer is chipped and missing on one the corner of the platform base and this is reported for accuracy. Please review carefully the photographs to see the items listed here.
H: 69 cm (27 inches); Diameter: 1.03m (40 1/4 inches) when tilted
