Edwardian Food Hall Stand
A stunning early twentieth century revolving food stand, most likely made for a food hall or grand hotel dining room. The large circular top is mounted on a stepped plinth-like base; both parts are made from turned solid mahogany. The revolving parts are made of brass, fitted to the underside and to the top of the base, affording smooth operation and continual motion - see images. Both practical and beautiful, its classic form would grace any dining room or kitchen – and it would be equally at home in a shop, restaurant or café.
