A good quality early 20th century mahogany oval
Butlers tray in the Georgian style having panelled
Construction and original brass hinges to folding
Sides raised on later square tapered leg stand
(Always a good answer to the age old problem of their
being no such thing as what we regard a coffee table
these in Modern Times being made during antique times
is the butlers tray on low stand. This particular example
is excellent quality, but appears to have been made
during the early 20th century in the Georgian style.
As is the case with most of these trays, this one has
been removed from its original folding waist height stand
and placed onto a stand of lower height to make it into
an extremely useful coffee table. The stand is well executed
and was probably made around 50 years or so ago.
The tray itself is in good condition and retains a nice colour
and patina. Certainly fit for purpose it would no doubt prove
both an elegant and functional addition to any room of the house).
