William IV/Regency Mahogany Antique English Tilt Top Table circa 1835
The beauty of the mahogany timber is on full display in this antique English tilt top table circa 1835. Mahogany, being an imported timber and not native to England, became especially desirable in the eighteenth century because of its arresting colour and grain. First popularized by Thomas Chippendale who saw its potential for fine decorative arts mahogany continues to be prized today. In this William IV Regency period antique English table the circular top enables the length of the grain with its variegated colour to exert its allure. The slightly recessed apron with its beaded edge balances the visual weight of the top with the base. There is an octagonal tapered column on this antique English table framed by a mahogany collar with a moulded profile where the column joins the base. The base itself is raised on casters concealed within a compressed sphere and all three points are in the shape of a "trifid" or three pointed terminus. This table is a tilt top and retains the original brass mechanism that allows it to be locked into a horizontal position for dining, game playing and other activities and then raised to a vertical position when needed and moved against a wall.
