Circa 1860, Victorian Amaranth kingwood, parquetry and marquetry fold over games table. It has a wonderful oval marquetry top with vibrant colours depicting a bouquet of flowers tied with green ribbons on a background of parquetry with burr walnut, canewood, boxwood and rosewood. The table opens and is lined in green baize playing surface and has other various inlays. The back legs are on a mechanism which pulls out to reveal a drawer. When full opened, sections beneath the sides come out to reveal a continuous apron with marquetry throughout. This telescopic mechanism folds away neatly when the table is not in use. The top of the legs have flared, gilded, downward facing cups covering the bulbous section of the leg. These continue down and end with troupe feet.
