Description

An exceptionally well proportioned (29) Chippendale period mid 18th century Irish carved mahogany console card table.
Card tables from the period of this small size (29) and form, tend to be more desirable as the proportions are more pleasing to the eye, it actually stands around 6-7 inches narrower than the standard size of 35 - 36 inches. Furthermore, when you wish to transform form the console to card table you simply swing open the back knuckle-jointed leg which opens to reveal a hidden drawer, presumably for cards and counters.
The carved cabriole legs on ball and claw feet are adorned to the knees with fine acanthus leaves scrolling into the ears and cross veneered stepped frieze. The figured and well-patinated top opens to a baize lined interior with four candle rests.
Whether you are a collector or a first-time buyer the choice of pieces will inspire. Each has been carefully selected for its exceptional design and provenance, as well as in many instances its academic significance.
Originality and authenticity are paramount; and using our extensive knowledge and experience in furniture conservation and restoration we can ensure that our clients can buy with absolute confidence.
