Antique Nest of Tables

Antique nests of tables or also known as nesting tables are not only very versatile but also very pretty pieces of furniture to look at. They were first illustrated by Sheraton in his Cabinet Directory of 1803 described as  ‘Quartetto tables’ and stated they are useful for needlework whereas George Smith in 1808 described them as ideal for serving refreshments. They were made throughout the Victorian and Edwardian periods in three main timbers, Mahogany, Walnut and on rare occasions Rosewood.
