A round walnut 'Mudie's Squeezer Card Table'.

The design of this table adheres to patent 2746 of 1898 which probably refers to the locking action of the folding legs. They fold on angled support struts that are fitted to slide along bars to the underside of the table. When they reach their end they are locked in place by a sprung wooden bar. The legs are made as pairs which are hinged to the underside of the table. This is a well-made piece of furniture from the panelled underside of the top to using 3, as opposed to the normal 2, hinges to fix the legs. The edge of the table is fitted with a brass band which offers some protection when folded and resting on its side.

The large label to the underside of the table gives away its title and also notes their 15 Coventry Street address. It is possible the name Squeezer is supposed to suggest that the table can be stored in a tight space but this is speculation. However, it was a name that the company were fond of as they also produced Mudie's Squeezer Pen. They are known to have also sold a more common square version of this table. Early 20th Century.
