Architect´s Table
Otherwise known as an artist´s or draughtsman´s table. There were many variants in the 1700´s, but the common link is an adjustavle, rising, drawing board top. Usually there are slides, candle slides, draws and compartments for pens and ink pots. Some have central pillars and tripods, but usually they had four legs and storage space for sheets of Double Elephant paper (26.5 ins by 40 ins).
