Antique English Mahogany Tilt Top Reading Table England circa 1840

Antique English mahogany tilt top reading table from England  circa 1840. Designed and manufactured by Robinson and Sons of Ilkley in Yorkshire this handsome English mahogany table retains its original label. This table was created to provide a stable surface upon which to enjoy reading large books which often had engravings and watercolour images within the binding. Because this table is adjustable in both height as well as the angle of the tilt it is eminently useful beside a chair with a book. The shaped base of the table stands upon concealed brass casters so it may be easily rolled around a room as well as sliding beneath a chair of sofa. The tapered column pedestal base is Regency in style as it has a faceted profile with eight sides. The original mahoagny knob on the pedestal controls the height while the larger mahogany knob on the top controls the angle of the tilt. Do take a look at the original circular label on the table as it is unusual to see an actual authentic identifying mark as they are most commonly lost over the passage of time.
