This is an impressive Victorian mahogany drop leaf gate leg dining/occasional table full of character and appeal. This is the type of table seen in London’s Spitalfields historic houses. The wood of the table has aged beautifully in a dark and rich mahogany colour with lovely patination, making this a very attractive antique piece. The top of the table has a moulded edge with a single drop leaf on each side. The leaves stand open with a single gate leg action.
The table stands firmly on ring turned legs on brass castors.
This eye catching antique table would prove an ideal piece as an occasional or dining table.
