Chippendale Period Tea/Card Table – c. 1770
Item no. 26
Chippendale period fold-over tea/card table in mahogany. Latter half of the 18th century, possibly as early as the 1760s, this charming table has a frieze cross-banded in thick mahogany veneer and the legs are square-moulded and chamfered. The table possesses a rich patina and deep colour. Seems to have lived long and hard. The single gate leg is a 19th century replacement. The table has been restored structurally and given a shellac/wax finish.
With top open, it measures 90 x 85 cm
Height 72cm – Depth 42.5 cm
Chippendale Period Chest – c. 1760
Item no. 22
Mid-late 18th century Cuban mahogany Chippendale chest circa 1760. Suggesting an earlier period with lipped drawers and front to back oak drawer bases, this piece retains its original hardware and functioning locks. Doric capped quarter columns add some class. Ogee bracket feet to the front (19th century replacement of right bracket and back panelling) and flat brackets to the rear, probably an economy measure given the high cost of mahogany. Restored. Pleasing colour and wax finish.
Width: 123 cm – height: 110 cm – depth: 56 cm
