An extremely fine and rare early George III mahogany supper table plausibly by Thomas Chippendale

An extremely fine and rare early George III mahogany supper table plausibly by the most celebrated maker of English furniture, Thomas Chippendale.

On the 5 May 1759, a notably similar table in form was supplied to Dumfries house by Thomas Chippendale “A mahog: breakfast table of fine wood wt. a Writing drawer and wirework round and castors….. £6-8”.

Though the example here shares many of the same attributes, the leather-wrapped low castors, fine moulding below the super compartment and fiddle back concave doors, it exceeds in many ways. The finely moulded solid mahogany top is decorated with an exquisite parquetry star to its centre oval of flame mahogany and further banded in box, quartered and edged in double-lined box and tulip cross banding. Similarly, the leaves are also of solid mahogany and veneered in a similar fashion. The solid mahogany moulded legs are relived to the internal edge, chamfered and inlaid to the face with 45 degrees cut tulip. Above the fine concave doors and moulded, gilt-brass wire supper section sits the writing drawer, decorated in fine cuts of mahogany with a line inlay of box and banded in tulip. The reverse is decorated in much the same fashion with a dummy drawer.

Condition

Good. Wear consistent with age and use.
