Object Description

A Very Good Quality 18th Century Georgian Mahogany 
Kettle Stand, or Wine Table, Retaining Exceptional Colour
And Patina Throughout Having Very Well Figured Wavy 
Gallery Top Raised On Elegant Carved & Turned Central
Column Terminating On Tripod Legs

(The ever popular name of Georgian Kettle Stand is applied
basically to any low tripod type table of similar form to this and
they were of course often originally made to house the kettle in
the centre of the room when taking tea, although not all of them
could possibly have had this purpose originally. Many of them 
were just made as simple occasional, or wine tables and they 
no prove extremely useful and functional in terms of their 
proportions for use as what we regard a coffee table in modern 
times. This particular example is excellent quality, with very
well carved decoration and retains a wonderful rich colour, so
has clearly been well loved throughout its life. That said, it should
be noted that as can be seen in the various images there has been
some historic movement to the top over the years and it is therefore
not perfectly flat. It is however very much still a functional piece
and very much fit for its original purpose)
