This is a handsome little work table which dates to the early 1900s.

It is a an unusual and decorative piece which could be used as a small lamp table when not in use for its intended purpose.

The table was made in India for the English market and was designed for use as a sewing or crafting table. It is made of solid mixed woods and is roughly the size of a bedside cabinet.

The table is quite compact but solid and heavy with a lift up lid to the top which opens to reveal a small lift out tray and a useful storage space for fabric, wools and other sewing equipment.

To the bottom are two narrow partitioned drawers which are finished with small brass handles. The drawers and top storage space are lined with a lovely burgundy patterned fabric which is nice condition.

The table is set on tapered legs finished with spade feet and there are attractive shell inlays to the front and side panels.


The table is in good structural condition with small cosmetic marks of age and use.





Each partition to the drawers measures 27.5cms front to back by 4.5cms wide by 4cms deep

The measurements are taken at the widest points.

VINTAGE HOUSE is a small family run business based in South Devon, selling quality hand painted vintage and antique furniture and quirky home wares.

Our interest in Vintage furnishings has been years in the making.  From an early age I spent time at auctions and antique fairs in South Devon with my mum, a passion inherited from my eccentric grandmother who had an eye for quality and a hoarders heart for beautiful things.

Subsequently what started as a hobby has turned into a full time business, turning the endless search for things we love into things we can sell from our home and in our online store.

We source quality antique and vintage furniture from the 19th and 20th centuries and where necessary revive and restore pieces to bring them back to life and up-to-date.

In our workshop we undertake traditional French polishing and upholstery methods, as well as self taught painting techniques to re-finish pieces that require attention.

Most of our furniture is made of solid wood, usually oak, mahogany or pine, we appreciate quality and craftsmanship and prefer selling British made furniture whenever possible.

Selling pieces that are useful and practical in the modern home, storage is always a key theme, appreciating that people need attractive items that also provide functionality.

Our painted furniture is created using eco-friendly paints and waxes from Rustoleum, Farrow and Ball and The Little Greene Paint Company.

It has always been important to us to have a 'green' business, we love the concept of recycling old furniture instead of buying new.

Quality furniture is hard to find at a reasonable and affordable price and we feel that we provide both.  The things we sell don't belong in the mass produced age of flat pack furniture, but are tailored towards an individuality that will suit both modern and vintage homes alike.
