The country's largest collection of fine Classical & Colonial Furniture... Just steps from the RISD Museum & John Brown House. A Carved Mahogany Chippendale Card Table, with Serpentine Apron, England, c. This is one of the finest English card tables we have handled.
The top leaves are beautifully figured mahogany, the edges of which are superbly carved. American models of this type were copied in Newport, and those carved edges never come close to the degree of craftsmanship shown here.Carving on edges is extremely difficult, and the work here is clearly by a master. The apron is serpentine and undulates on two planes, from the front, and from the bottom. All offerings are in fine condition with no major repairs or replacements unless otherwise indicated in description. Item must be insured in full.
