What is it for?

Delightful & Usefull but what was the top used for?

In the eighteenth century many of the pieces made were done so on a commission basis. On occasion, this now results in us buying a piece whose purpose has been obscured by time.

Just in and looking as pretty as a picture, is this unusual satinwood table from about 1780. Whilst it is obviously a table, it has what appears to be a game board inlaid into the top.  It looks a little like a board for a game of Morris but it would be nice to know whether it is for a game or has some other purpose. If anyone out there knows, we would be delighted to hear from you.

In the meantime, it is for sale and its details may be found on the relevant page on our website.
