A work of extraordinary ingenuity and rarity, this Irish mechanical dining table transforms into a fully stocked games table with just a few turns. Crafted of impeccable Cuban mahogany, the table exhibits a striking patina and a beautifully sculpted base. Its most impressive feature, however, is its gilt bronze crank and complex internal mechanism, which has been fully reconditioned to function seamlessly. Turn the table’s top counterclockwise, and the center rises to reveal four cut glass decanters. Once lowered again, a turn of the crank counterclockwise opens six drawers in the table’s frieze, each holding an assortment of games, from cards, chess and checkers to Parcheesi, boules and cribbage - and even a horse-racing game! Turn the crank back and six more drawers pop open, holding cut glass tumblers, inkwells, nib pens and ashtrays to ensure that a relaxing time is had by all.

Metamorphic furniture has a diverse and well-documented history. These fascinating furnishings represent a marriage of ingenuity and craftsmanship, and were as mechanically complex as they were beautiful. Today, these pieces are among the most desirable of all antique furnishings, representing the limitless imagination and skill of the cabinetmaker.
