Advert For Lyle's Portable Folding Table
Medium: Print on paper
Towards the end of the 19th century lots of cheaper furniture made from soft woods were sold by retailers to the middle classes. A table like the one featured in this leaflet would have been very useful, it could have been used as a coffee table in the parlour, as a table to eat off in the breakfast room and even to write on in a study. Because the legs of Lyle’s table fold down it would have been useful in smaller homes where it could be used and then folded up and tidied away.
