This is a fine quality set of three Regency nest of tables, with great proportions, constructed from mahogany & rosewood, circa 1820, in excellent original condition. The tops are constructed with fine quality rosewood veneers and the legs of mahogany, which is decorated with “simulated rosewood”, which is the traditional and highly skilled method of painting mahogany to appear like rosewood (see paragraph below – Simulated Rosewood, for more information). The table-tops feature fantastic grain configuration and colour to the tops, which also feature low galleries. The nests of tables are supported by refined ring turned “bamboo” style legs, which in turn are united by an elegant cross-stretcher (for added strength) and terminate on elegant refined splayed feet. The tables display superb craftsmanship and each of them slides comfortably into each other.
The nest of tables boast a rich brown colour and they are in excellent robust condition. This is an extremely useful piece of furniture and a great asset to have in any living or dining room or hallway, as they consume very little space.
They have a beautiful deep rich patina, which has been generated by the years of cleaning and care they have received. This truly is a very beautiful item with quality construction and is original throughout. This item would certainly grace any home, so don’t miss out on your chance to own such a lovely antique item.
Simulated rosewood is the process of taking a more common wood and altering its appearance to make it appear as rosewood. This rose to prominence in the Regency period, when exotic woods became more and more popular, sparking a desire to imitate them. Achieved by applying a base colour, over which a ‘graining’ colour would be painted, then swept with a graining comb and finished with varnish, simulated rosewood became an art form in its own right, with highly skilled painters. This led to simulated rosewood becoming as desirable as genuine rosewood by the end of the Regency period.
