Irish Mahogany Dining and Games Table

2 minute read

 

A work of extraordinary beauty and rarity, this magnificent Irish mechanical dining table transforms into a stunning games table with just a few turns. Crafted of impeccable Cuban mahogany, this versatile antique dining table exhibits a striking patina and a beautifully sculpted base. It's most intriguing feature is the gilt bronze crank, which sits in its center atop burlwood veneer. Turn the table's top counterclockwise and this center rises up to reveal four cut glass decanters. Once lowered again, a turn of the crank counterclockwise opens six drawers in the table's frieze, each holding an assortment of games, from cards, chess and checkers, to Parcheesi, boules and cribbage, and even a horse-racing game! Turn the crank back and six more drawers pop open, holding cut glass tumblers, inkwells, nib pens and ashtrays, to ensure that a relaxing time is had by all.
