History and use
Believed to be made in Queensland for Sir Leslie Wilson, Governor of Queensland, this large inlaid silky oak table is an outstanding example of Australian timber furniture. It features an inlaid coat of arms and decorative border constructed from a variety of Queensland timbers.
The object comes from the Huntington Club, Southport, which was Sir Leslie's summer residence in the 1930s. It was restored before being donated to the Queensland Museum.
