Circa 1815, ash and pollard ash library table by William Trotter of Edinburgh. The long narrow rectangular top has rounded corners and beneath there is a simple apron which is veneered in pollard ash. While open it resembles a sofa table with 2 drawers to the left and right, with 2 dummy drawers adjacent. These have sunk beading facing, a classic feature of Trotter furniture. The table is free standing so has a small quarter bracket to the front and back. In the centre of the upright there are carved acanthus leaves all the way around, a rebated section in the centre and carving in reverse. Beneath this is a tapering or flared block which comes down to a large raised platform base. The platform base has further Trotter traits with concave sections all veneered and of pollard ash. The piece stands on 4 turned feet with fluting and tapering, leading to the castors.
