A very good looking and decorative piece, I've had it fully restored as its such a good find. The top has what looks like some kind of castle or perhaps religious building inlaid in the top, the type of work is called Tunbridge wear and is extremely fine and difficult work. The legs are expertly carved and very ornate. The insides have been left totally original, I doubt the new owner will use this as a sewing table, its more of a decorative side or lamp table.
As mentioned this has been fully restored, its been washed back and French polished from the ground up. The top has a slight curve in it from timber. Shrinkage, it didn't perfectly meet the lock so we loosened the lock and now it does.
There is a tiny bit of inlay missing from the top, otherwise its perfect.
