Charming 19th Century Sewing Table with Basketweave Carving & Spooled Legs would have been a decorative way to provide an essential function at the turn of the century.  Inspired by the Oriental imported furnishings that were popular for, by then, over a century, its surfaces have been carved to imitate woven basketry, with scrolled legs connected with a turned stretcher below for support.  Compartmentalized drawers aided in keeping the thread, needles and accouterments organized. The elegant detailed combination of the aged painted finish and the basketweave design makes for a very unique and desirable table.
