An outstanding George III period satinwood veneered tripod table. Circa 1760. The design for this remarkable table draws inspiration from drawings for 'claw tables' illustrated in Ince and Mayhew's Universal System of Household Furniture (1762). This table also has close stylistic similarities to tables supplied by Thomas Chippendale to Harewood House and No.19 Arlington Street, all of which have segmentally veneered tops. Regardless, we love it.
Usually associated with Chippendale furniture. Although used by Thomas Chippendale, this style of foot was not his design, as it was fully developed prior to Chippendale beginning his work. The bottom row shows the typical "ball and claw" form used on chest.
