It has the very typical and elegant rectangular cavetto shaped top, and is raised on cabriole leg.
Silver tables are so called because in the Georgian period they served in the dining room or drawing room to hold the silver ware and flat ware (cutlery) for use in dining or tea services.
The tray top with raised rim or “cavetto rim” was used to stop the silver metal objects slipping off.
As the 19th century progressed, they were also used for silver urns and fine porcelain for the morning or afternoon tea service.
In modern times they make for beautiful side or lamp tables.
This coveted item is estimated at €6,000/10,000.
