This fabulous table is just so useful in the home for reading, working from home or using as an occasional table. The tilt lectern top can also be used to display art or drawings. 


Lots of signs of its age and history. Marks to the finish. There is some movement in the upstand so the table top rocks on the base. Historical woodworm holes on the upstand.
