Antique Hall Tables, also known as an Antique Telephone Table was a long slim piece of furniture often similar to the console table in design but this stands on four legs and quite often will have one or two drawers in the front or sides. They were mainly built in Oak or Mahogany were produced in the Victorian and Edwardian periods often in the Arts and Crafts designs. Due to their slim, tall appearance, they are very useful and stylish, so can really be placed anywhere in the home but were originally only built to stand in a hallway. Furniture makers like Gillows of Lancaster and Maple & Co, specialised in such tables and often built them to the customers specification, but these are quite hard to come by as they are very sought after and collectable. Here at Antiques world, we do get good traditional antique tables in stock, along with hall furniture. Have a look below at our lovely examples available for sale.

Regency Mahogany Bow Fronted Antique Side Table / Hall Table. This antique side table dates from the Regency period, circa 1830, is constructed from mahogany and has a classic bow front design. The top has moulded edges with attractive string inlay around the perimeter. The bow fronted top sits above two oak lined drawers with decorative brass handles and boxwood string inlay decoration to the front. The table sits on elegantly turned legs and is the perfect size to sit at the side of a sofa, perhaps with a reading light? There is evidence, to the expert eye, that the top has been modified. This was quite a common practice during the Edwardian period when additional decoration was often added, as is likely to be the case in this instance. It has resulted in a beautiful table having classic Regency lines with practical proportions.
