Antique Oak Folding Card Table.
A very nice oak campaign games table with green baize playing surface. There are four pullout draws with a glass viewing window for the scorecards. The top is hinged to the centre to enable it to fold up and the base is an X-frame, very similar to a coaching table. The table is secured closed with a nickel plated clasp, and when open the top is secured in place with lever catches to stop the table collapsing.
When open the table is 28 ½ inches high, the top is 31 inches by 28 ½ inches.
There is no makers name on this table, only 'Patent applied For' on the nickel frames for the viewing windows of the drawers. In the past though on several of this style of table they have had labels for 'Finnigans, Liverpool' or 'John Bagshaw & Sons (Liverpool) Limited' on them.
