British Colonial Tilt Top Side TableMid 19th century
A British colonial tilt-top side table in rosewood. The round top has a carved edge above an applied apron that is pierced and carved with foliage and rosettes. The top 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, takes up less space. It is supported on a carved column that rests on a carved triple-form base terminating in 3 carved bun feet.
The table is in good condition and has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing. The Indian rosewood that this piece has been made of has a naturally occurring dark shade with a striking grain.
