George III Cuban mahogany pie-crust kettle stand

Stock Code: 2008 - SOLD

Description: A fine early George III Cuban mahogany kettle stand, retaining excellent colour & patina. The circular top with carved and moulded 'pie-crust' top over a turned column, with rings, bobbins and a central fluted spiral twist collar. The table is supported on a tripod base of three cabriole legs with acanthus leaf carved knees terminating in an elongated pad foot. A table of very neat proportions apparently in fine original condition.

Further Information: This type of low, diminutive topped table was normally used for standing a tea kettle on, for the ceremonial Georgian process of 'taking tea'. Today most people find the height and small size extremely convenient to use the piece as a wine or drinks table.
