Circa 1825
Item # 803IIF07 

A very elegant form with a lightness of profile that is most admirable, this fine center table exhibits a skilled matching of veneers throughout.  The top is arranged in six book-matched bands of alternating hues of fruitwood, allowing for a stunning symmetry of diamond formations to appear in the grain.  Similar work is accomlished in the apron to allow a crotch-like grain to form at the central point between each leg.  The mellowed colouration is most attractive, the wood left with a natural waxed finish to allow the grain to have prominence - this is particularly effective against the parcel ebony highlights around the bottom edge of the apron and in the leg stretchers.  Raised in the center is a magnificent giltwood finial, a substantial and beautifully carved piece that positively defines the table.  The underside shows an untouched structure with a laminated carcass beneath the delicate fruitwood veneers.  An oak medial bar lends strength to the top, this built of solid pine beneath the fruitwood veneers of the top.

Perfectly balanced, graceful in pose, this is a very fine and well designed table.

Measurements:  39 diameter x 29 1/8 H

Condition Report:
One leg was broken and glued at one point.  Very slight warp to top and gap between top and apron in a few spots, some associated losses cracking - this is mostly hidden from view as the top projects slightly over the apron.  Some spots of veneer patching.  Old mellow patina with age appropriate scuff/wear.
