Boxwood Cross Banding

A fine late-18th century Hepplewhite period mahogany writing table, the cross-banded rectangular gilt tooled dark brown leather lined top above three short drawers on both sides, retaining their original swag handles with their original gilding, with ivory escutcheons and boxwood cross banding; on elegant tapering legs, terminating on brass castors.


A similar writing table can be seen in 18th century English Furniture: The Norman Adams Collection. p. 118.
