An Unusual George II Small Supper/Side Table
A Small Georgian Plum Pudding Mahogany Tilt Top Table ca. 1770
A Tall Mahogany Georgian Tripod Torchere ca. 1750
A highly unusual 18th century painted simulated burr/walnut wood table ca. 1720. The dimensions are also unusual as it stands slightly higher than usual at 30 inches high with legs terminating in very abstracted hoofed feet. This is a charming table with a very lovely decorative apron on the front freeze. The painted surface is in very good condition. We prevaricate between suggesting the table is American (Colonial) or possibly Scandinavian. There are two lovely brass handles and a functioning drawer. Interestingly the back side of the table is also painted even though it is designed to stand against a wall.

A George II mahogany open armchair with lovely scrolling arms on cabriole legs ending in pad feet. Scrolling top rail above an vase fretwork back splat. The armchair has a drop-in seat newly upholstered in blue Claremont damask. This arm chair would make a wonderful desk chair and is in good country house condition. One minor repair to the left scroll terminal at end of the arm rest (see photo) and both arms have been re-pegged at the side rail for extra stability at some point. Good overall colour and patina and not re-polished in order to retain its original condition.

A very stylish North Italian chestnut wood canapé. In overall good and original condition. The back section is removable and slots in place as is the back cushion which is held in place with hand-forged hinges. Equally the side cushions are removable. This sofa has an elegant shape and is very decorative. It has been recently re-sprung and covered in yellow Lelievre damask. The wood has a lovely mellow dark patina typical of chestnut. Although the sofa is in very good condition it’s vintage would suggest a more decorative role rather than a practical one.
There was some damage to the escutcheon on the top of this mirror which we had restored. A small area had to be re-carved to replace a missing detail, this area had to be re-gessoed, carved and was gilded to match the original gilding. As the mirror retains its original gilding we chose to leave it in its current condition. This means that there are some areas where the gilding has worn where the red bole is showing as well as some small areas of gilding loss. We feel that this is to the benefit of the object.
English, circa 1730
Size: Height 122cm-48in. Width 57cm-22,5in. Depth 4 cm-1,5in.
The Emperor Maximillian III was Prince-elector and Duke of Bavaria from 1745-1777 and it is under his guidance and artistic philosophy that this taste found fruition. He founded the Nymphemburg porcelain factory, he was the patron of Francois de Cuvillies, the father of the Rococo style, from which porcelain were strongly influenced, that white porcelain which, harked back to Chinese Blanc de Chine, stylistically washed over into all forms of decorative arts and with this pair of girandoles we can clearly see the echoes of the Emperor’s first passion. Condition: Very good, some areas of repainting. Germany, circa 1740.
