An English Turn of the Century birch work table circa 1900 with octagonal top. Step back into the early 1900s with this delightful English Turn of the Century birch work table, a testament to timeless design and practical craftsmanship. This charming piece, also known as a sewing table, beautifully encapsulates the utility and aesthetics of a bygone era.
The octagonal top showcases an elegant, darker toned cross banding, adding a distinctive aesthetic appeal to the piece. The top smoothly opens thanks to the key operated on the apron to reveal a compartmented interior with petite removable lids, perfect for organizing sewing accessories or other small items.
Continuing the cross banding motif, the table's apron mirrors the same appealing design as the top, creating a cohesive visual experience. The table is gracefully raised on four slender legs, their splaying extremities enhancing the sense of space and lightness. Further accentuating the balanced design, a cross stretcher with a central octagonal motif connects the legs, adding stability and visual interest.
