An antique Georgian drum table is a classic focal point for a room. Antique drum tables first came into fashion in the mid Eighteenth Century and continued to be made until the 1830s; earlier examples have a light and elegant feel and became progressively chunkier and heavier as taste evolved. It is the earlier examples which command a premium and most appeal to contemporary taste. Superior examples such as this antique Georgian drum table illustrated will have a revolving top and mahogany drawer linings; lower quality examples will have a fixed top and oak or pine drawer linings. The rotating top was intended to allow the drawers to act as a basic filing system and some examples even have lettered drawers. Like all antiques the value of an antique drum table is greatly enhanced if it has survived in untouched condition.
