Antique drop leaf table, mahogany, UK, 1850
I believe this is the oldest piece of furniture I have in store now. It is from my private collection. My mother bought it for me, for my first house. I really loved it and it was the star of our living room for decades. After a long time I took it up one floor where it served as a desk in my study. But now it has to go, we are remodelling our house, reshuffling all our stuff around, creating an extra bathroom and a guest room. So I have to let it go, no more space.
No, I do not regret it. I hope it will bring some one a lot of pleasure. When I look at it, I remember all the late late dinner parties we had, the tender applications I wrote on it (and usually won them as well), the bookkeeping I did on it. And I remember my son, 3 years old at the time, who was playing hide and seek, hid under this table and fell in sleep. While I was looking for him, with mounting panic, until I found him, one (!!!) hour later, sleeping the sleep of the innocent.
I hope this table will bring you as much joy as it brought me.
