Victorian Mahogany Adjustable Over Bed Table

Victorian Mahogany Adjustable Over Bed Table

This bed table is an excellent quality piece of antique furniture, and it dates to the Victorian period.

Please note that it was designed to go with a Victorian bed which would have had plenty of height clearance at the bottom to enable the base to go under, therefore a modern mattress base or bed frame will not be suitable. It doesn't necessarily have to be used with a bed, it will alternatively make a very useful side table that could go in any room.

The bowed end tapering top is made from quality solid mahogany, and the turned tapering column has a second column within it to enable the top to be raised and lowered. The top also rotates approximately 45 degrees.

The rounded end tapering platform base is mahogany veneered, and it's fitted with a trio of well turned solid mahogany feet which have casters inserted into them. 2 of the casters are original and made from metal while the third is a non original wooden replacement.


The condition is generally good, however there are several age related marks of use to mention, most notably in the column, base and turned feet which all have rubs marks, scuffs, dings, and dents. The outer column has some age related shrinkage cracks, as does the widest end of the base, and the base also has some veneer damage and chips.

The top has some marks of use and it leans a little, i.e it's not perfectly level, and the adjustable section of the column / the inner column has age / use related rub marks and abrasions due to being raised and lowered over the years.

We've included 20 large pictures further down this page which show the table from several relevant angles, therefore it's sold as seen and as accurately described. It's also priced in accordance with it's condition.


The height measures 29 1/2 to 45 inches.

The width measures 34 inches.

The depth measures 17 inches.

The height to the top of the base measures 7 3/4 inches.
