Object Description

A fine and rare small George I mahogany table of diminutive proportions, circa 1725. England

The top, moulded to all sides and with reentrant corners sits above a cavetto frieze fitted with a finely lined drawer raised on scrolled ear cabriole legs, carved to the knee with a shell and pendent terminating on pad feet.

The table is moulded to all four sides with four-eared cabriole legs and cavetto moulded to the back. This would suggest that the table could also be used as a centre table or silver table.

It should be noted that this is one of the smallest examples of its type and of very good colour with rich age-patinated surfaces.

Small single-drawer tables such as this are usually associated as bed-chamber tables and dressing room tables, however, they had a multitude of uses in Georgian homes and appear in inventories as parlour tables, passage tables, library tables, entrance hall tables or anteroom tables and pier tables.
