Anglo-Indian Rosewood Dining TableMid 19th century
A British colonial tilt- top dining table in rosewood. The circular top is superb with moulded edges above and below the short apron. It is hinged to the central pedestal in such a way that it can be turned from a horizontal to a vertical position and, thereby, when not in use, take up less space. The apron with a relief carved floral pattern.
The base has a solid central pillar that is carved on the four sides with a floral design. This pillar rests on a quatrefoil platform with hollowed sides terminating in four S-scrolled carved feet.
The table has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing. The rosewood has a dark shade with a striking grain.
