Antique English Chippendale Style Mahogany Table circa 1790

The sleek and slender lines of this antique English George III mahogany table circa 1790 are wonderfully modern in appearance. Designed toward the end of the eighteenth century when the Neoclassical style was in full flower this English tea table features beautifully pierced fretwork carved spandrels on each of the four sides where the table apron meets the top. These sole decorative embellishments exemplify the marvelous restraint designers such as Thomas Chippendale exhibited in the late 1700's when creating both interiors and furnishings. As with the best of English cabinetry it is the small details that point to excellence. The flat top extends slightly beyond the apron while the legs are each shaved on the inside corner edge to enhance their slender appearance. The apron is wide and flat in order to give attention to the grain pattern of the mahogany veneer. Above all it is the hand cut open fretwork elements that enable this antique mahogany table to stand apart. Please be sure to enlarge and zoom on the photographs to see the subtle differences between the spandrels indicative of hand work.
