An interesting table for its sheer versatility, this delightful table is first a console in demilune form, second opening up to a perfect circle as a games table and finally opening once again into a card table with a green baize playing surface.

Crafted of fruitwood veneers stained at various hues to create contrast, the top is situated with bands of veneers going out from a circular mid-point with a dark edge banding and stringer-inlay border.

The apron is simple with bright cherrywood panels framed in stringer inlays and dark borders and is raised over distinctly Neoclassical legs, each tapered and turned with fluting along the length terminating in cast brass sabots over castors.

The top is supported by withdrawing a small drawer in the back of the apron, this a hand-dovetailed box that is ideal for storing cards and gaming parts, also integral with the rear fourth leg. The first top can be laid down by flipping up a small hinged tab in the drawer, supporting the level of the first leaf. The second top can be laid down by leaving the tab flipped down, this resting on a green baize padded edge.

A fun and flexible form with a wonderful historical surface.

Measurements: 28 3/8" H x 39" W x 19 3/8" D [closed]; 27 3/8" H x 39" W x 39" D [first level open]; 26 3/8" H [second leaf open]

Condition Report:
Original hinges and castors; old oxidized and discolored surface throughout; several spots of finish blemish where a sticker has been removed, most notably at the front of the apron; some veneer losses around the hinges; replaced green baize card playing surface with some wear/discoloration; some shrinkage cracks to fruitwood veneers of the top.
