Catalogue Note

The present lot is antiquarian in design in that it blends 17th century classical motifs in the relief carving of the apron, fluted legs and stretchers. The cylindrical legs echo those found on a table by Louis Comfort Tiffany for the Veterans room in the Seventh Regent Armory, New York City which was completed in 1881. Tiffany furniture produced in revival styles tended to look to the 18th century as a source of inspiration so it is unlikely that the present lot is a piece by the designer. However, the quality of the carving, well-chosen timber and fine construction point to a designer-maker of some note.
