This English mahogany three tier server was made during the late Victorian period around 1900. Also known as a dumb waiter or etagere this piece would traditionally have gone in a dining room and meals would have been served from it. Today we use them in a variety of places like the kitchen, foyers, and again the dining room. The four columns are beautifully turned and the mahogany has developed a lovely patina over the years. The finish has a very rustic charm to it, making it a perfect kitchen or dining room piece.
Dumb Waiter Condition
The server is in good condition. It does have marks acquired over its more than 110 years of life including small dings and dents on all surfaces and columns. We have tried to capture a sampling of this in the pictures. All of these marks are minor and serve to add character and charm to the piece rather than detract from it. Also, the lowest tier sports a small age separation. Finally, the lip of the middle shelf has a small repair on one of the short sides. The casters still roll easily.
The distance between the bottom and second shelf is 15.5″ and between the second and top shelves is 17″.
Very nice dumb waiters like this are hard to find, so don’t miss your chance to own one today!
