Antique English Mahogany Pedestal Table England circa 1860

A unique antique English mahogany table with a shaped top from England circa 1860. This table takes advantage of luminous quality of the mahogany timber and then follows the fashion of the mid nineteenth century by shaping the top with an undulating profile. While the top is entirely symmetrical the length and width relate to each other along broadly sweeping curves reminiscent of those seen in Continental furniture, especially French pieces. Please use the zoom feature offered on our website after enlarging the additional photographs offered to see the lovely shape of the top as well as the lustrous finish and beautiful grain of the mahogany timber. The turned pedestal column base of the table is balanced in its boldness to the scale of the top while the three splay feet that support the column are angled in such a way as to visually guide the eye from the base all the way up the column to the shaped top. The skill exhibited here on this table is a good example of English cabinet making where innovation combines with tradition in creating something functional yet wonderfully beautiful.
