Antique English Regency Style Mahogany Butler's Stand Etagere Original Brass Casters circa 1860

A slender antique English mahogany butler's stand etagere England circa 1860 with turned vertical supports standing on the original brass casters. This amazingly useful and functional piece of English cabinet making retains its appeal today because it is so versatile. The top surface is at a pleasing height for both serving and display while the two lower shelves each have a raised border around the back and each side to keep any object placed there from falling off and crashing to the floor. Between the top surface and the shelves are vertical supports each made from a single piece of mahogany timber and turned upon a lathe to give them their distinctive pattern of inward and outward movement. At the base of each of the four legs the taper is enclosed by a circular cap of brass that stands upon the wheeled caster so the table may be easily moved about the room to where it is needed. This attribute of easy movement was especially important before the invention of reliable heating and cooling in the home. Being able to move needed pieces of furniture closer to the fireplace or the open window as the seasons changed was very desirable. Because this server possesses such clean lines it is quite simple to use in a variety of rooms to fulfill various needs.
