Antique Bridge Tables were designed from the early 18th Century Georgian period on-wards for the card game Bridge. Bridge was most popular in the Victorian and Edwardian periods and was used with sets of cards with artists painting comical pictures on the back. These card sets can be very collectable and sought after now.
