The card game of patience was hugely popular during the 18th century and seen as a little light entertainment which was a great way of passing the time. It was indeed so popular that these specific types of small, occasional, lamp type tables with folding tops were christened specifically as “patience tables” made with the intention of one being able to use them as an attractive, elegant little side type table for a large amount of the time, whilst also being able to sit down at them and play cards once the tops are folded over.

This is a great example, of very good quality, constructed from rich rosewood timber which retain an excellent colour and are highly figured. Raised on elegant tapered legs with original castors it also retains its original turned wooden knobs to the single drawer and false drawer which allows the table to look the same from all angles.

It has also received a natural wax polish to ensure it is ready for immediate placement within the home.
