19th Century English Burl Walnut Sutherland Table

$6,20037% Off


Late 19th century English drop-leaf table from the Mid-Victorian Era. Made of gorgeous yellowish-brown walnut with a fantastic burl walnut table top. The top is a solid piece of burl walnut not veneered ......... the top is simply glorious!! The table was made circa 1850-60. It sits on beautifully turned fluted legs with the porcelain and brass casters. Two of the legs swing inwards and outwards to extend the 2 leaves of the table. Fully extended the table has a fabulous curved and indented edge, in an oval shape on both ends. The center column is beautifully turned and fluted. The 2 side columns are again beautifully turned and fluted and end with 2 extending scrolling supports that end in turned bulbous twin feet. This is a high quality item and highly desirable! Antique Sutherland Tables are a Victorian invention of a much smaller gate-leg table with a particularly narrow center. It is the ideal serving table as it takes up no room when not in use and when extended can make a very large surface as the drop flaps are usually long, almost to the floor. The earliest design was first seen in the 1850s with oval leaves and standing on pedestals. These are mainly constructed in Walnut or Mahogany and the best examples are in figured Burr walnut. They are quite dainty looking antique tables but surprisingly robust when extended as they were originally used to hold a full tea service which would include cups, saucers and tea pot. They were also quite often used for games playing and writing for the Victorian Lady. Provenance: Bought from a reputable dealer in Ireland. Dimensions: 25.5" high, 36" wide and 44" long (fully extended) 25.5" high, 36" wide and 7.5" long (leaves down).
