Product Description

This antique oval coffee table was crafted in England around the year 1960. The rich yew would complement any setting, while the table itself remains very sturdy and in good overall condition.

Classic Georgian style

The design elements used in this coffee table come out of a long tradition of English cabinetry dating back to the Georgian period. The traditional oval design itself is very elegant, while the yew cross banding and ebony string inlay around the edge are also a classic touch. The pedestal base was a favorite Georgian design popularized by Duncan Phyfe, among others. All four swept legs end in brass panther feet with casters for convenient movement; each one remains as sturdy today as the day it was made. The legs also feature a small carved decoration.

Rich yew wood

The yew remains very beautiful, with a rich complexion and a striking grain that have made this wood type prized for many centuries. It was originally treated to an elaborate finishing process that included multiple coats and a final layer of hand-rubbed wax, which can be re-applied periodically as needed to help protect the natural beauty of the wood. However, the table top has sustained a few scratches and a number of small scuffs and finish wear that are visible when looking closely at the table. These are quite minor and contribute to the genuine character of this charming coffee table. The pedestal base also has a strong repair where two of the legs were re-attached.
