|REGENCY MAHOGANY TILT-TOP TRIPOD TABLE CIRCA 1795 .
The Regency period was a very flamboyant interesting time in British history which is reflected in its furniture aswell as fashion . The beautifully turned central column or as we know it gun barrel is supported by the Regency trait of swept legs terminating with brass castors .
The gun barrel has been beautifully turned which is typical of the Georgian era with the Cuban Mahogany being the timber of choice for its craftsmen . Originally brought into Britain from the Caribbean as ballast on ships it's strength and beauty were soon recognized .
