CHIPPENDALE RECTANGULAR MAHOGANY CONSOLE TABLE
England, circa 1770; with fine carved pierced fretwork returns
Item # 904JGP18L
An excellent Chippendale console table crafted of dense solid mahogany during the third quarter of the 18th century, the form is simple and clean. Intended to serve as a center table, it has been designed such that it presents beautifully from all angles.
The squared Marlborough legs are highlighted with a twisted rope inset in the outermost corners while each is transitioned to the apron with an angular pierced-fretwork return. All legs join the apron with a hidden tenon joint supplemented by rectangular blocking from behind; the top is likewise affixed with glued blocks along the corners of the underside.
Refined and elegant, this superior center console table is a powerful strike point with a fine overall surface patina from centuries of shellac, waxing and gentle use.
Measurements: 29 3/8" H x 55 5/8" W x 27 5/8" D
Missing several original blocks from under the top and flanking the leg posts; old scuffs and scars to surface, now a fine part of the overall patina under shellac and old waxes; old cracks and repairs to pierced returns; three holes under feet suggest possible absence of castors.
