England c. 1760
Item #  1503KRP28

A wonderful work of art from the third quarter of the 18th Century, this crisply carved little tea table remains in an outstanding state of preservation throughout.  Retaining a very early and well oxidized finish, the table is a perfect display of balanced craftsmanship.  Being austere and free of unnecessary embellishment along the simple turned column and top, the legs literally bring the table to life and infuse a degree of the exquisite into the form.  The acanthus carvings are perfectly symmetrical, perfectly repeated from one leg to the next and almost sharp to the touch in crispness and quality.  A small anthemion drapes from each foliage display along the soft cabriole of the three legs, each terminating in a padded club foot.  While simple and restrained, the top is crafted of a gorgeous selection of mahogany, turned with precision to carefully raise the molded lip around the edge of the top.  This is affixed to the pedestal with screws through a collar beneath the top.  The legs affix into the pedestal with unassisted dovetails.

This precious piece is a highlight, a refined addition to any formal sitting room, a work that elevates an interior in a remarkable way despite it's slight stature.
