A Victorian Ebonised and Painted Sowing Table

An extremely pretty and beautifully made Victorian Ebonised and Painted Sowing or Work Table with Mother of Pearl Inlay. A real well executed topographical painting adorns the serpentine table top, with figures, temples and palm trees. The Mother of Pearl cleverly used to decorate the buildings. Table lid rises to reveal a compartmental interior lined with fabric. Sides and legs are profusely painted with floral and scrolling gilt decoration. Single drawer above a painted shelf. The whole standing on curvaceous legs terminating with castors. A really lovely piece and rare to find in this good original condition. As well as a wonderful sowing table it could also be used as a side, console, occasional, bedside, centre, cloakroom or lamp table.

Hello, my name is Miles and I would like to welcome you to my store Tinker & Toad.

We are a family run business in the heart of the beautiful Sussex countryside. We deal in an eclectic mix of antique and modern furniture, architectural salvage, re-worked industrial lighting, decorative arts and a carefully selected choice of paintings and modern art.

We have a bricks and mortar shop in Heathfield, East Sussex where we always welcome first-time buyers, collectors and interior designers. We have retailed from the shop for 18 years and took over the premises ourselves in 2015 and have seen a gradual increase on returning customers. We pride ourselves on giving a personal, friendly shopping experience and hope you will arrive a stranger, but leave as a friend.

With our love of both antique and modern interiors, we enjoy helping our customers to furnish a space, whether it's a loft apartment, a club, a cottage or a castle. We have supplied many wonderful customers, including Soho House, The Box Club London, Elmore Court Gloucestershire, Bonnington House Scotland and the Ned Hotel London. I am happy to take a phone call seven days a week, 8am to 8pm or feel free to pop me over an email. We look forward to hearing from you.

Warmest regards, Miles.
