For the equestrian type a most useful and decorative piece. It has a nicely shaped brass carrying handle and down swept feet. I have had this and enjoyed it for the past forty five years but as I am no longer a mounted hunt follower this much admired piece is ready for a new home.
It has just been professionally polished as years of boots and whips took their toll, so now lovely and ready for the next hundred years.
Size: 116.5cm by 61cm
A most fine example and a refreshing change to find one in Walnut veneer which adds an extra dimension of quality.
It has a swivel mirror supported by decorative scrollwork.
An arrangement of six small and one long drawer above a single one.
Standing upon fluted column legs to the front.
A good point is that it is not too wide enabling it to fit into a smaller room and yet its imposing look of grandeur remains.
A lovely piece dating from the height of The British Empire.

This beautiful piece is profusely carved with fruits including pomegranate, grapes, plums, summer flowers and leafy vines. The folding stand is also carved.
Food for thought, whilst writing the description I stood the top on my easel and immediately thought my goodness this would make a most stunning frame!
Another nice feature is that the base folds flat for easy storage.
A nice piece most skilfully made.
