(By far the earliest example of a Lazy Susan that we have come across
this is a most charming piece of 18th century craftsmanship. It is believed
that the very first Lazy Susan was invented around the middle of the 18th
century so this is almost certainly one of the first that would have been
appearing and no doubt originally belonged to an extremely wealthy, upper
class family. It is constructed from superb quality timber and retains a lovely
rich color and patina, also showing superb craftsmanship in its construction.).
