Here we have a 1880s Presidential Solid Quarter Sawn Library Table with Atlas Drawers. This table is the quality of a Library of a Congress Table. It is built like a boat and will survive the times. On the bottom of one map drawer there is a hand label of 777. If this is the Newspaper section, it would contain the Eighteenth-Century American Newspaper in the Library of Congress, The Virginia Gazette, w. Aug. 6 1736 - Apr. 1, 1750. The 777 notation could also mean bibliographic database references.

There are two drawers, which pull out at opposite ends. The drawers have ridge runners which hold them in place. The drawer can be pulled out fully with out slanting under weight, holding with only two inches to spare before the drawer is released from its sleeve.

The legs are serpentine curved with lion paws. The stretcher slab is notched into the legs with "C" braces on each side. Braces are lovely carved with feather detailing.

The same quarter sawn grain can be seen under the table. There are three slabs which make the table face. The table skirt is nicely curved with the legs, adding a solid stance of stability and substance. There is plenty of leg room on all sides. This table can seat up to six side chairs. Traditionally it sat two placements for study room.

The table is 45 inches long, 30 inches wide and 30 inches high. The drawers are under 3 inches deep, 20.5 inches wide and 27.5 inches long (inside).

I cleaned, conditioned and buffed sealed the table for a new owner. This table is appraised above 2.5K in material, craftsmanship, age, history, utility, condition and rarity.

About myself: I am a retired Material Science Engineer (B.S.) and during my earlier years I restored sculptures at the Hirshhorn Museum within the Smithsonian. I have a Bachelors of Science with Material Science and Industrial Arts. The example you see here is a job I did this year. My specialty is wood furniture and I can do jobs right outside your front or back porch. Garages work well for winter time work.
