BIEDERMEIER NEOCLASSICAL CHERRYWOOD CENTER TABLE
Probably Austria, circa the first quarter of the 19th Century
Item #  512FPZ04X


A truly exceptional table of the finest design, this partially ebonized and cherry veneered center table exhibits such purity and clarity in it’s clean and undistracted lines.  The round top with a finished veneer edge is dressed in swirling grains of cherry under a glossy French polish.  The apron is veneered with the grains of cherry positioned vertically, drawing natural lines into the gentle scroll of the apron lobes that undulate beneath an ebonized beading.  The klismo legs are crafted in two parts - the lower portion of the leg slides into the stretcher with oversized dovetails, the upper section of the leg locked through the stretcher and rising into a scroll at the top.  Stamped brass mounts finish either side of the scroll.  

The design of this table is pure and harmonious, the stretcher mirroring the soft curvature of the legs while the subtle tapering results in an airy and light form. This is an exquisite find for the home where purity, clean elegant lines and pristine presentation are a must.

Measurements:  41 7/8” W (along the grain) x 41 1/4” D (against the grain) x 29 3/4” H

Condition Report:
Hairline shrink cracks throughout the surfaces (both top and apron). Strip of solid cherry runs down the center of the top joining the cherry veneer over pine secondary on either side of the top; this is a likely a repair made when the two sides separated due to shrinkage. Two lobes on the apron are replaced. A small red stain at one spot along the apron (just beneath the top, not particularly visible). Overall very minor surface wear to the french polish finish, not the original finish but early and handsomely patinated. Pure understructure with original screws, battons and joinery.
