19th Century Mahogany Butler's Tray on Folding Stand
A good, generously-proportioned example from around 1870-90 and in very good condition, with hand-holds to all four sides, the ends raised above the lower sides, the tray base unusually made from two distinct pieces of timber but, seemingly, all original, supported on a folding X-frame stand with plain stretchers and seat webbing, this attractive butler's tray will impress in the most elegant of reception rooms, whether period-furnished or more contemporary in style, fully-deserving of the admiring attention it will undoubtedly attract.
O/All Tray Length 78cm x Width 53.25cm (30.75" x 21")
Height to Tray 88.75cm (35") & O/All Height to Up-Stands 100.25cm (39.5")
This piece dates from the mid to late 19thC, so you may expect the mature character & patina of age, together with minor wear & tear commensurate with normal use but, otherwise, it's in very good, clean & sound condition and ready to use in your home.
