Circa 1820 Regency Amboyna Wood Worktable. Has fine ebony banding on the sides and drawer front and inlaid on the top. Before the 18th Century, ladies used to keep their needlework in baskets, until furniture designers started to create elegant little tables with silk work bag hanging below. This is a very rare worktable that features brass handles and patinated bronze claw feet and a drop-down satin bag for needles. The drawers were originally meant to hold sewing materials. This worktable has casters, making it easier to move around from room to room. When you take out the drawer completely, you can access the larger storage compartment for the needles. For overall aesthetics and symmetry, it has a dummy drawer on one side that matches the drawer that pulls out. Overall, this is perfect for a creative person that sews or just needs an unusual piece of history to add interest to any room.
