Antique Sutherland Tables are a Victorian invention of a much smaller gateleg table with a particularly narrow centre. It is the ideal serving table as it takes up no room when not in use and when extended can make a very large surface as the drop flaps are usually long, almost to the floor. The earliest design was first seen in the 1850s with oval leaves and standing on pedestals. These are mainly constructed in Walnut or Mahogany and the best examples are in figured Burr walnut. They are quite dainty looking antique tables but surprisingly robust when extended as they were originally used to hold a full tea service which would include cups, saucers and tea pot. They were also quite often used for games playing and writing for the Victorian Lady.  Have a look below at our lovely antique Sutherland tables examples available for sale along with a few sold examples.
