George II Mahogany Tripod Tea Table

0.00

"How pleasingly is the firmness in standing convey'd to the eye by the three elegant claws of a table."                  - William Hogarth: The Analysis of Beauty.  1755.

Rarely - very rarely - does one come across a tripod table in prefect condition: showing every evidence of antiquity, of daily usage across the centuries such as this example. The underside of the top is what shows all this, beautifully oxidized and with evidence of many hands gripping it over the years. The solid top has that unique mahogany, with a grain which one sees in late 18th-century furniture alone, and nowhere else. A plain top with a carved base: the stem is perfectly formed and the triple splayed legs are well-carved and have their original surface - thus exhibiting all the elements one wants to have in old English furniture: 

                purity of design           

                quality of workmanship, and                  

                an untouched surface condition and good colour.    

Circa 1750        

Height - 29 inches     Diameter of top - 25 1/2 inches
