Lyre Ended Table

This piece was made by ex-Sydney cabinet-makers. Designers William Norman and George Bloomfield worked in partnership for 13 years in Maitland, New South Wales around 140 years ago. They crafted Hunter River cedar into beautiful Colonial furniture of which this lyre ended table is an exceptional example.
"The end supports of the table are shaped in the form of a lyre, which is completed by hand-turned inverted finials under the apron. Each lyre end rests on a low bracket-form base, decorated with hand-turned patera and strengthened by a finely turned stretcher." Australian Colonial Living Furniture by John Buttsworth, plate 57.
In November, 1987, Sotheby's sold the original for $13,000-00.

The Lyre Ended Table is a versatile and beautiful occasional piece. It can be used as a writing desk, a sofa table, a hall table or an elegant dressing table.

Master Craftsman's comments
The dove-tail joints in the drawers are fitted for maximum strength. All the turnings, from the stretcher rail to the patera, finials and drawer knobs are hand-turned from solid cedar by our master wood turner. The two drawers are cut from the one piece of timber.
