Circa 1860, mid-Victorian burr walnut and inlaid drop leaf table. The top has quarter matching veneers, solid burr walnut veneers, and several bandings in satinwood and king wood. When open it forms a large oval and when closed the 2 drop down flaps are quite deep, making a pencil-shaped table top. With an apron to each end, and a single drawer with burr walnut facing, it is standing on a turned and tapering column. There is a bulbous, carved section and substantial quadruple base. Each of the cabriole legs have well carved acanthus leaves from the top running down the knees and the sides have mouldings with a small C scroll beneath. The table is in excellent colour and condition.
