A teak Hatherley Patent Table.

Charles Allen Jones of Down Hatherley, Gloucestershire invented and produced the Hatherley patent table along with a number of other items such as step ladders, bicycle stands and easels working to the same folding mechanism.

This B1 Pattern table can also be part folded to be used as a 'Book Rest, Portfolio Stand or Kneeling Desk'. Although Jones doesn't note it in his catalogue description, it is also very useful as an easel to either work on a painting when sat or for display. When doing so, a lectern bar is lifted and held in place by a twist catch, to the long end of the top.

When not needed, the table can be completely folded for easy storage. The Hatherley was a very practical design, so much so, that Jones warned against those copying his patent. This table is stamped twice with Hatherley Patent. Circa 1910.
