This is an Victorian Antique Library Table made from ebony and burr walnut with Jasperware Plaques, dating from around 1880.

The top, with its gold tooled writing surface is impressive enough and makes it a real joy to work at but, when you shift your gaze down to the splendid base with its Jasperware plaques, you begin to truly appreciate the exceptional nature of this antique library table.

Antique Victorian Library Table

The combination of ebony and burr walnut with ormolu mounts works particularly well but it is taken to a new level when combined with an array of Wedgewood Jasperware plaques, as it the case here.

The oval shaped table top has an inset gold tooled leather writing surface in a lovely burgundy shade and set off  with an ebonised border.

The frieze has burr walnut banding decorated with four Wedgwood jasperware plaques which have been set in ormolu mounts.

The sturdy but attractive base includes four turned and ebonised columns standing on a four legged cabriole base. As you can see from the photographs, the base has been elaborately decorated using boxwood stringing together with burr walnut panels. The legs are fitted with the original brass castors for ease of movement. The centre of the base features a beautiful ormolu urn which is surrounded by sixteen Jasperware plaques.


This antique library table is offered for sale in excellent condition at a price of £2850. The condition is very impressive and reflects the fact that the piece has been carefully and skillfully restored in our own workshops.

Dimensions: This lovely antique library table measures some 74cm high x 122cm wide x 91cm deep. In feet and inches that would be, 2 ft, 5 inches high x 4 ft wide x 3 ft deep.
