Antique Ebonised and Gilded Bobbin Legged Octagonal “Gypsy” Table


As found, this stunning antique octagonal “Gypsy” table – dating from the late 1800s or early 1900s – features ebonised bobbin turned legs with gilded banding, a great shape and loads of character. A piece of furniture which is certainly a conversation piece!

The top, made from three separate pieces of wood, is a little uneven and could do with some attention, but is functional “as is”, either with or without a new surface covering.  Due to the age of this item the gilding is worn in some places but the ebonised wood is otherwise in an extremely good state – particularly the central “ball” – with wear and only to the extremities of the legs. We wouldn’t want it any other way and we have not attempted anything more than a gentle clean in order to retain the undoubted character of the table.

The top measures 53 cm (21 in)  square and the table height is 58cm (23 in)
