A very fine architectural Regency period card table, in the Gothic taste, attractively veneered in finely burled amboyna, banded in tulipwood, strung with ebony, and decorated with gilt brass mounts.

Anglo-Chinese, circa 1820.

The rectangular fold-over swivel-action top, veneered in amboyna, crossbanded in tulipwood and strung with ebony, opening to reveal a burgundy baize-lined surface, over the panelled frieze, having beaded gilt brass mouldings, raised on a square and tapering arch-moulded, ebony-inlayed and gilt brass mounted column, above the quatreform base, supported by four bun feet with original concealed brass castors.

The table has a restrained architectural design in the Gothic taste, promoted in the Ackermann's 'Repository of Arts', which, together with the fine exotic veneers, give away a fashionable piece, made in China for English market. Chinese export furniture of this period is quite rare, especially of this quality and well-balanced, civilised European design.

Excellent original antique condition, traditionally wax-polished, expected patina and other signs of age.
