ABSOLUTELY LOVELY CAST IRON PUB TABLE

APPROXIMATELY 100 YEARS OLD

THIS TABLE WAS ONE OF THE ORIGINAL ITEMS OF THE STAYLEY WARD LIBERAL CLUB, STALYBRIDGE, CHESHIRE, WHEN IT OPENED IN 1911. IT WAS PART OF THE FIXTURES AND FITTINGS DISPOSED OF IN THE YEAR 2000 WHEN THE CLUB SADLY RANG 'LAST ORDERS' FOR THE FINAL TIME.

THE DETAILING ON THE CAST IRON FRAME IS WONDERFUL, IT CONSISTS OF THREE ORNATE LEGS, AT THE TOP OF EACH LEG IS THE REPRESENTATIVE OF 'THE SPIRIT OF BRITAIN' - '''BRITANNIA WITH HER SHIELD'' , AROUND THE SHIELD ARE THE WORDS 'SLAVERY ABOLISHED' . THE TABLE LEGS ARE FINISHED WITH LIONS FEET.

THE CURVES ARE SO BEAUTIFUL AND REALLY SET THE TABLE OFF WELL.

ON THE LOWER STAND ARE THE WORDS 'LUND & REYNOLDS, BAR FITTERS, KEIGHLEY''

THE TOP OF THE TABLE IS, I BELIEVE, POLISHED MAHOGANY, THERE IS SMALL DAMAGE TO THIS - SEE PHOTOGRAPH NUMBER 4

THIS IS TRULY AN INTERESTING PIECE OF HISTORY AND IT IS ONLY NOW WHEN I AM PHOTOGRAPHING IT DO I REALISE THE VAST AMOUNT OF DETAIL INVOLVED IN PRODUCING THIS ITEM.

THE TABLE MEASURES APPROXIMATELY 24" IN DIAMETER AND IS APPROX 30" HIGH

DUE TO THE VERY HEAVY NATURE OF THIS TABLE COLLECTION ONLY PLEASE
