Playing our cards close to our chest, so to speak!

This weekend Linden Hall Hotel in Longhorsley, Northumberland, again plays host to the Antique Dealers Fair Ltd, ‘Luxury Antiques Weekend’. We regularly exhibit at this annual event and have some beautiful pieces to show visitors this year, as usual we hideaway many of the items we take to the fair to add some mystery and excitement to proceedings! This year, we have a very interesting games box, a fine walnut chest of drawers and a regency kingwood card table, to name but a few!

We’ve selected the Regency Kingwood Card Table to give you a sneak preview today; although once the fair is open tomorrow it will also be available to buy on our website if you aren’t local enough to attend the Linden Hall fair.
This Unusual early 19th century Regency kingwood veneered, turn over top card table, stands on four short sabre legs with gilded brass toes and casters. The legs support an oblong platform with concave sides, adorned with brass stars that are inlaid into the corners.

The platform in turn supports four serpentine shaped legs that hold the table top and the turn over side of the top has an old baize playing surface. On the centre of the frieze below the table top is a decorative brass inlaid panel.
The table is in very good condition and has had the polish sympathetically restored. The table dates from circa 1810 and is a fine example of an antique card table from the regency period. The table stands 73.5cm tall, is 91cm wide and 45.7cm deep in dimension.
We look forward to welcoming you to our stand at Linden Hall this weekend, the details are shown below and should you require more information, the image links directly to the Antique Dealers Fairs Ltd website. There are several restaurants and bistros on site at Linden Hall, with a selection ranging from tea and scones to รก la Carte to suit every taste.
