We are delighted to be able to offer for sale this fantastic antique writing table dating from the 19th Century. This Victorian library centre table is oval in shape and fashioned from beautiful flame mahogany which has been polished to perfection.

The top of this lovely antique writing table features a border that has crossbanded decoration. This Victorian library centre table rises on two plain columns and stands on four circular shaped pad feet. This gives a very sturdy feel to this lovely Victorian library centre table and one can well imagine it stacked high with precious books, yet leaving enough room for writing space.

It also has two spacious drawers accessed from one side, with dummy drawers on the other side and comes complete with working locks and key. This design ensures that this antique writing table can be placed in any part of a room, including the centre. At 153cm (5ft), its size means that it can be placed in most rooms without overwhelming the space.

Flame mahogany has been the wood of choice for master cabinet makers and craftsmen throughout the centuries. Thomas Sheraton in the 18th century extolled the virtues of the wood as being the fact that it was strong, worked easily and had beautiful figuring that could be polished up well enough to be ‘an ornament in any room in which it’s placed’. This can certainly be seen from this gorgeous Victorian library centre table. The flame element of mahogany is revealed by slicing through the part of the branch that joins with another part of the tree.

This fantastic antique writing table is sure to be a talking point in any room that you place it, especially one that has a Victorian inspired decor and ambience as it really typifies the excellent craftsmanship of the era.

Flame Mahogany
Thomas Sheraton
 - 18th century furniture designer, once characterized mahogany as "best suited to furniture where strength is demanded as well as a wood that works up easily, has a beautiful figure and polishes so well that it is an ornament to any room in which it may be placed." Matching his words to his work, Sheraton designed much mahogany furniture. The qualities that impressed Sheraton are particularly evident in a distinctive pattern of wood called "flame mahogany."


The flame figure in the wood is revealed by slicing through the face of the branch at the point where it joins another element of the tree.
