Antique Campaign Occasional Table
As can be seen this mahogany occasional table has legs that fold in pairs to pack it down to a size no greater than the top. When set up the legs are held in position by the side rails which are hinged to lift up. They have metal pins to the ends which lock into metal plates on each leg. Added to this one of the pairs of legs has wooden, sprung bars that the side rails have to be pushed beyond to get into position. The rails will not fold into their flat position until these springs are depressed to allow the rails to pass them. This ensures that the table remains stable and will not collapse of its own accord. The legs and top (made of 2 pieces) are solid mahogany but the moulded edge and the rails are veneered on oak. The design of the turned and reeded legs are such that they suggest the table is continental. It is well made and the size would allow it both to be used by an officer to dine and work. he antique period is circa 1880.
