Object Description

These antique wooden tables, with their decadent decorations, feature the very finest of English lacquer-work, which was referred to as ‘japanning’ for its attempt to replicate Japanese lacquer-work.

The tables are crafted in dark wood, and feature octagonal shaped tops with petal-form edges. The table tops are decorated with lacquered floral arrangements and gilt scrolls of foliate motifs, delicately inlaid with shimmering mother-of-pearl. The central stem of each table is elegantly twisted, in the Baroque style, and leads to ornately carved tri-form legs, which are decorated with further gilt floral motifs.
