A Beautiful Rosewood Library #Table

An Anglo Indian serpentine library table of exceptional quality in solid rosewood. The intricate carving, which goes fully around & includes two drawers on one side & two ”dummy” drawers on the other, is absolutely superb. The swept cabriole legs terminating in beautiful lion paw feet and brass casters.
A truly exceptional & incredibly rare piece, without doubt by an important cabinet maker & includes a carved signature which, according the British Library is in ”Tamil” & reads, they believe ‘Ū. Ja’. With a wonderful patina, exquisite solid timber & rich colour, the piece is in excellent condition. . .

Measures: 140cm wide x 75cm high x 75cm deep
