20thC Thuya Wood Metamorphic Writing Table

A very elegant and stylish thuya wood metamorphic writing table with ivory stringing and tulipwood crossbanding.

French, circa 1910-20.

Inspired by the late 18th Century neoclassical designs (particularly those of Thomas Sheraton) this extremely good quality table has a wonderful elegance, with the use of select cuts of rich thuya wood contrasting beautifully with the white ivory stringing.

The metamorphic sliding top, strung and tulipwood banded, exposing a fitted interior and writing surface, the lockable frieze dividing to reveal sectional writing compartments, incorporating the original capped ink wells and leathered writing surface, raised on slender flared square tapering legs joined by shaped stretchers.

In excellent condition with a wonderful colour.

A very elegant table that is suitable for both a contemporary and traditional interior, very much of the style David Linley has adopted for his works.

Please note this piece has been registered with the government as exempt from the ivory ban as contains less than 10% therefore legal to sell to any collection

Now into the second generation, Loveday antiques is run by Alexander Loveday.

From the early days until 2012 Loveday Antiques had three major showrooms running, located at Chelsea, Ascot and Islington, but sensing the major shift towards the online side of the business in January 2013 Alexander decided to close both Chelsea and Ascot and concentrated more on working via the internet and website as traders, interior designers and the public's buying habits changed.

The internet now allows us to trade globally 24/7, whilst keeping our overheads down and passing on these savings to our clients.

The start of 2014 has also led to more change, relocating the original showroom in London from The Furniture Vault in Camden Passage, from where we have traded for over 40 years, to our new showroom conveniently located in Hertfordshire within the A1 and A10 areas, just off the M25.

The new showroom is just North of London and only a 20 minute train journey from Kings Cross, London to Stevenage, with just a short 10 minute drive from there.  We are can easily arrange to pick clients up from the station as long as you let us know when you are coming.  If you are driving, it is 10 minutes from both the A10 and A1m.
