The most ornate medieval style buffet table we’ve been privileged to offer! Boasting lion’s paw feet that rise toward Gothic winged lions this investment in fine furniture art takes well over two weeks of skilled hand-carving. Imagine serving a bountiful brunch from its wide top of more than a yard of glowingly polished, kiln-dried hardwood. Accessories are kept at hand in its two generous drawers that feature intricately carved Greenman handles. Named after Lord Thomas Samford Raffles, who founded the British colony of Singapore, our exclusive boasts the authentic period details of a true Gothic revival piece, echoing the fine craftsmanship of centuries past. 42"Wx20"Dx40"H. 100 lbs. Sir Stamford Raffles On first seeing Singapore, which was then a small fishing village, Raffles, a particularly forward-looking and benevolent agent of the East India Company, grasped its potential as an entrepot (or trans-shipment) port. He thereupon purchased the island for the East India Company from the Sultan of Johor and invited Chinese and Indians to immigrate to the new town, thus inaugurating Singapore's present multi-cultural society. During the short time that Raffles visited Singapore, he founded a girl's school and other institutions. Unfortunately, his wife and children died there from illness, and shortly after his return to England he died of a brain tumor, having lost his fortune when a bank in India crashed. Some months before his death, the British government refused a pension for Raffles, one the most important, as well as most benign, creators of the British Empire. - more info
