S/543 Regency Snakewood Work Table
The octagonal top, outlined with holly stringing, is above a snakewood lined drawer fitted with partitions, two ebony knob handles, lock and key. To each side it has panels outlined with conforming holly stringing.
The whole is raised on four slender but sturdy ring turned legs united by a cross stretcher for strength and is fitted with brass cap castors. The work table is in good condition, a lovely rich colour and retains a patination.
South American snakewood is also known as Pernambuco, Ironwood, Letterwood, Amourette or Brazilwood and is used to make violin bows or veneers for the finest quality decorative furniture.
