A Fine 18th Century George III Mahogany Pie-Crust Tripod Table with birdcage in the manner of Thomas Chippendale, c. 1760-1770. England
The moulded pie crust top sits above the original four gun barrel birdcage.
The stop reeded fluted column to the base leads down to a finely carved gadrooning baluster.
Each of the three out swept legs are finely carved with acanthus to the knees and terminate on scroll feet.
It should be noted that the table is of original colour and well patented.
The style, form and sheer quality of this piece mean that it is not only in the manner of the most famous cabinet maker of 18th century England but could plausibly by him.
