The Sutherland table was named after the Duchess of Sutherland, Queen Victoria's 'Mistress of the Robes' and is a sought of cousin to the Pembroke table. It is characterised by a narrow central section supported on a trestle-like, cheval base with deep flaps either side.
A late 19th century Victorian satinwood cross-banded, mahogany oval Sutherland Table. The table stands on 4 satinwood inlaid outswept supports, joined by a fret of 6 supports tapering to the centre. The two sides are joined be a serpentine shaped undershelf. Each side has a pull-out gate action leg which terminates in an original turned brass castor, this supports the "D" shaped flap.
The usefulness of such a table is immediately apparent; its narrowness in the folded position enables it to be tucked away in a small space, while the deep flaps provide a spacious top when opened out.
The table is in overall good condition, with just a few faint surface scratches.
