Object Description

An absolute gem of an early George III mahogany table in the rarity of its style, action and functionality. The square collared legs and feet show allegiance to an earlier period while forecasting the burgeoning taste among the cognoscenti for the Ecclesiastical Revival, dating it within a very few years to 1760. The action supporting the top when open is one we’ve never seen before where all four legs swing out to allow a clear seating space at each end thus enabling it to serve six people although only 42” by 33” when open, normally only for four. The timber is of the hardest and heaviest Cuban, or ‘Spanish’ so called as the island was at that time a Port of Spain.
Truly a delight for a collector or someone with limited space for a family meal.

It has a slight damage to the rule joints over two of the hinges but we are offering it as it is, for it has never been in a workshop for restoration and its condition suggests only in private ownership since new.
