New Zealand Table


Category: Archive

Subcategory: Campaign Tables

This occasional Table has a well turned leg but stands out because of the unusual wood used in its construction. Totara Wood, native to New Zealand, is a very striking timber with distinctive marking and a colour similar to satinwood. This table was designed to fold away easily, when not in use, yet give a sturdy, useful side table when upright. A sprung ash bar underneath the top keeps the legs in place and releasing the spring enables the legs to fold underneath the top. Circa 1860.
