(On Hold) Antique English William IV Rosewood Mahogany Wine Table circa 1835

An antique English William IV period rosewood mahogany wine table from England circa 1835 having a raised gallery edge. This table displayed a prized bottle of wine or port for enjoyment after dinner in a well appointed home. The tall and slender profile made this antique English table easy to move about a room and be placed adjacent to a comfortable chair. Notice how the gallery rail keeps a bottle and glasses from slipping off to the floor while also providing an attractive embellishment to the entire table. The column has a pleasing turned profile and is supported by a tripartite base raised upon small feet. Both the base and the top of the table feature lusciously grained timber applied in a veneer while the central column is a solid piece of mahogany. An unusual feature of this table is the round top of rosewood actually is removable to reveal a small storage space. Originally the butler would enter the room and use a slender metal rod pushed through a tiny hole on the underside of the table to gently lift the top off to access a wine opener. The top is totally secure unless the table is tipped over whereby the top is easily separated. Please use the enlarge and zoom functions offered on our website to see the details in each photograph.
