Bay Colony Antiques is proud to offer for sale this exceptional 19th century antique English Regency sewing stand / work table. The table has a Mahogany & Satinwood top with hand tooled leather around the body. The very center of the top has a fantastic cut of Fiddle Back Mahogany surrounded by a string inlay with a cross banded Mahogany border. The largest portion of the top features straight cut Mahogany that’s laid out in intersecting quadrants. There’s a couple more inlays before a large Satinwood border & a final series of inlays. The edge of the top has a Mahogany border & lifts open to reveal a pink silk brocade interior. The column is finely formed with down-swept legs with turret ends & inlaid panels. The legs have had some repairs but the work was well done and it’s pretty much commonplace with stands of this form. The stand does have a few age splits in the veneer and there’s a couple of tiny little veneer hits around the top edge. We’ll ask our restorer to touch these in but wanted to get this table for sale right away because it’s such a rare form and is an absolutely stunning piece. The stand measures 21 5/8” wide x 17 1/4” deep x 26” tall. When the lid is fully open the height is 43” tall.
