Object Description

An unusual 18th century miniature table of rectangular form standing on cabriole legs. A perfect display for a small tea set or pair of candlesticks. The solid wood top, with inset armorial plaque, is mounted with a silver framework. The underside still has the original claws to hold the wood in place and the pretty little wing nuts for the silver plaque; the remains of an old collector’s label can be seen in the corner.

Top measures 26.2cm x 16.4cm. Height 6.3cm.

Maker’s mark only, stamped twice.

Probably Italian. A grand tour piece.

Circa 1780.

Marks. Marked on the top rim of the silver in two places with a letter surrounded by dots within a circular punch. The silver armorial plaque is probably unmarked but the style of the engraving is English.

Object Condition

In very good condition. There is a minimal small wood loss in one corner – see photo.
