George IV Macassar Ebony Reading Table

George IV Macassar Ebony Reading Table


circa 1826 - 1836

An early 19th century George IV Regency period adjustable Macassar ebony reading table.

The rectangular veneered top is made with two adjustable reading flaps with a ratchet mechanism to the reverse.

The Macassar ebony is laid on a mahogany carcass and the reading table is telescopic so it will rise and fall and can be adjusted to a suitable height by using the brass knob on the ring turned and carved pedestal column.

The column is simulated and stands on a Macassar ebony veneered triform plinth base. The plinth is raised on simulated turned bun feet and concealed brass castors.
