Description: Reproduction of a Seymour Ladies Worktable.  Original table shown in “The Furniture Masterworks of John  & Thomas Seymour by Robert D. Mussey, Jr., Catalogue Entry #80, 29½” x 19⅛” x 15¾”. Currently in a private collection.

My reproduction is identical in size.  It is made of Swietenia Mahogani and Satinwood solid primary woods and Eastern White Pine solid secondary woods.  Other woods include: Avodire Crotch, Satinwood, and Walnut burl veneers.  A Holly and Ebony lunate banding surrounds the top edge. Holly and Ebony stringing is used throughout.  A Maple, Ebony, Sheoak, and Holly banding surrounds the apron bottom edge.  The burlwood top is surrounded by Satinwood crossbanding with an inlayed Greek Key.

The top drawer is fitted with a writing tablet with a gold embossed leather surface. The bag is made of silk purchased in Vietnam in 1970 while I was serving in-country with the Navy.
