VICTORIAN CARVED OAK HUNTBOARD CONSOLE TABLE
Signed A. Harvey, crafted in London c. 1860-80
Item # 702NAJ22O 


An angular piece made striking by the powerful stylizing of the legs, it exudes strength and presence.  The leg diameter is in perfect proportion to the size and visual weight of the overall console, lending a sense of balance and correctness to the form.  It is a simple and practical piece, the large open top providing a clean work surface that would originally have been used in the dining room as a server for platters of food.  The two deep drawers offer plenty of storage space while invisibly sliding back into the apron with minimal distraction.  Applied beading along the bottom edge of the apron and a carved rosette in each corner offer the only embellishment to the frame.  The top edge of one drawer is stamped “A. Harvey” with a serialized brand of “196”.  Tight hand cut dovetails show a tidy and precise craftsman; the inner side of one drawer is joined with a half-slotted dovetail that drops down into the drawer face, allowing the drawer face to cover the gap between drawers and create a minimal seam between the drawers.  With an attractive and rather old patina, it is a most striking piece for the hallway or wide corridor, still serving beautifully in the dining room and also operating nicely as a desk or library table against the wall.

Measurements:  69” W x 30” D x 32 5/8” H
