Spectacular Quality Figured Burr Walnut Tunbridge Inlaid Victorian Antique Games Table Work Box.
This is constructed by a True Victorian Craftsman out Of Quality Figured Walnut, With The Most Skilfully Inlaid Top and Most probably custom built for an extremely wealthy family, ca 1860. The top swivels and opens to double the size to reveal an inlaid chess and bridge board. Below is a fitted drawer, then work box, again in a beautifully figured walnut and elegantly shaped. This truly unique piece stands on turned upright supports and a turned cross stretcher and elegant scrolled carved legs and white porcelain castors. The burr walnut has aged to a rich golden shade with a striking grain, good patina, is in very good condition and has been beautifully cleaned using a traditional form of wax finishing.
