A George III Burr-Yew-wood Sofa Table

Origination: English
Circa: 1790

The rectangular yew-wood top with burr-elm inlaid oval and pear and boxwood strung borders sits above two frieze drawers and two conforming false drawers to the reverse with a chevron feather-banded edge. The table supported on end-supports with high stretcher and splayed legs terminating in brass caps and castors.

This exceptionally fine table is a wonderful combination of yew wood and elm. These two woods, which are both indigenous to England, were chosen for the highly figured nature of the grain, but which have changed colour beautifully.
