19th century furniture may not be the height of fashion, but this wine table is one of only a handful known to carry the label of Anton Seuffert, New Zealand’s premier cabinetmaker and inlayer. Many of the timbers seen to the 23in (58cm) diameter top are timbers native to New Zealand.

This wine table by Anton Seuffert sold at Chiswick Auctions on January 9 at £9500.

Consigned for sale from a private source at West London's Chiswick Auctions on January 9, it sold to the trade at £9500 (plus 15 per cent buyer's premium).
