Marble Top Cylinder Bedside Cabinet.

IMG_2035

I have always thought these mid 19th.c. cylinder or column shaped bedside cabinets were great looking things – an early design classic perhaps? Ideal for the bedroom of course but definately worthy of a place in a living room as a useful little lamp table with storage. Fine example here with a white marble top set within a wide moulded lip to stop things rolling off. Mahogany veneered body and plinth, flame mahogany door with a white porcelain knob with brass collar. Excellent condition, cleaned and polished in our workshops.
Dimensions: diameter 16”, height 28½”.
