Circa 1870, mid Victorian burr walnut library table. The rectangular top is quarter veneered in highly figured walnut with a very elegant three quarter wrap around gallery of open fretwork. There is a brass bezel around the fore edge of the entire table. Beneath the top are two drawers, the left stamped ‘C.Hindley and Sons Ltd’ and ‘Miles & Edwards, 134 Oxford Street, London’, patent number 21157. The table is polished on the back and is freestanding. The trestle ends have open fretwork and are united by an unusual stylish barley sugar stretcher. The whole piece stands on four carved cabriole legs. Useful size, excellent colour, good condition.
