Circa 1765 England
18th Century George III Mahogany Tripod Table – Manner of Thomas Chippendale
Height 28 1/2 inches (72.5 cm)
Width 25 1/2 inches (65 cm)
Depth 25 1/2 inches (65 cm)
A George III Period mahogany tripod table, the octagonal figured top upon a turned fluted column stem with spiral base, all terminating in three cabriole legs with richly carved acanthus decoration and scrolling feet with sunken leather castors.
This table relates closely to known examples by Thomas Chippendale. Chippendale certainly utilised the octagonal top in table deigns and the profusion of carving in the lower section bares close relation to designs in his 1754 publication, The Gentleman and Cabinet-maker’s Director. The carving is excellent throughout.
