S/1083 George IV Goncalo Alves Centre Table
The attractively figured bookmatched veneered top is above two cockbeaded drawers, fitted with turned knob handles. False drawers conform to the other side.
The whole is supported on a stepped barrel column, which is raised on a four sided concave platform base, with reeded round feet, decorated with paterae and fitted with brass castors.
Goncalo Alves is a hardwood, which is sometimes referred to as Zebrawood or Tigerwood. The trees grow in neotropical forests, in particular Brazil, which is a major exporter of this wood.
