A Late Victorian Mahogany Two Tier Table


A late Victorian freestanding two tier table.

A late Victorian freestanding two tier table, the rectangular top with moulded edge and canted corners on pierced square supports to a lower tier with a geometric pierced gallery, the supports tapering to a point, and bearing underneath a paper label for Druce and Company, Portman Square, London. English, circa 1880.

Condition: Overall very good, the table is solid and robust, the piercing to the gallery is in good condition and the timber has good colour and pleasing grain.

Druce and Company was set up by Thomas Charles Druce in London in the 1840’s, eventually becoming a large concern, producing a wide variety of furniture, and also a department store and estate agency (which continues to function to this day). The firm made good quality pieces, using good timber and elegant proportions.
