A fine quality mid Georgian Dumb Waiter. 18th century mahogany, dense and richly coloured, was the perfect wood for this classic piece of furniture. Three circular tiers, united by turned columns, and supported by a tripod base, made tea and informal supper an elegant part of wealthy Georgian life. The 2 lower tiers revolve, the axis being a steel rod which firmly holds the table together. It is easily dismantled, therefore possibly made to be portable. Originally with casters, these are now missing. The condition is excellent, with a fine waxed surface and a rich mahogany colour. Circa 1770.
