An elegantly designed table in selected well-figured rosewood veneers with brass stringing and cut-brass inlays. Raised upon four hipped sabre-leg supports from a concave-shaped platform with 4 turned columnar supports . The brass castors of a distinctive oak-leaf and acorn design , probably alluding to its manufacture in the workshops of the celebrated London Regency-period cabinet-maker George Oakley (1760-1841). Established in Bond Street and patronised by the Prince Regent ,and later as King George IV, Oakley was re-knowned for his fashionable use of brass 'buhl'(sic)/marquetry type inlay and elements of Grecian antiquity style. The brass inlay to the top with 'fleur-de-lys' and 'clover-leaf' type motifs and scroll decoration. Of free-standing form, the front frieze fitted with 2 assymetrical mahogany-lined drawers with intricately brass-inlaid centre reserve panel , with 'mirrored' "dummy" arrangement to the reverse. The twin drop-flaps each supported on double shaped brass-inlaid folding 'fly' supports. A fine quality table of excellent rich colour and in original condition, has been cleaned and waxed in our workshops. No breaks ,repairs, warps or losses.
