Created exclusively for Design Toscano, our craftsmen take more than ten days to create this handsome console table with single drawer for storage from fine mahogany, hand-rubbing it to a burnished finish and distressing it just enough to replicate a true antique. Named after Lord Thomas Stamford Raffles, who founded the British colony of Singapore, this statement piece is an investment in fine European styling. Found only at Toscano! Simple assembly required.

    Assembly Instructions
  • Sir Stamford Raffles (1781-1826)

    On first seeing Singapore, which was then a small fishing village, Raffles, a particularly forward-looking and benevolent agent of the East India Company, grasped its potential as an entrepot (or trans-shipment) port. He thereupon purchased the island for the East India Company from the Sultan of Johor and invited Chinese and Indians to immigrate to the new town, thus inaugurating Singapore' s present multi-cultural society. During the short time that Raffles visited Singapore, he founded a girl's school and other institutions.

    Unfortunately, his wife and children died there from illness, and shortly after his return to England he died of a brain tumor, having lost his fortune when a bank in India crashed. Some months before his death, the British government refused a pension for Raffles, one the most important, as well as most benign, creators of the British Empire.
