Description: A superb George III carved mahogany serpentine side table in the manner of Robert Adam. The solid, extremely well figured mahogany top of serpentine outline to both front and sides. Below the serpentine fluted front frieze with central carved urn, the canted front corners leading to serpentine fluted sides, with an applied bottom moulding all around. The square section fluted, tapering legs with carved floral appliqués terminating in a floral carved block foot. Fine colour and patina throughout.
Further Information: This table closely follows the influence of Robert Adam’, whose name is known as much for his work in interior decoration and furniture design, as it is for his architecture. Adam must be considered along with Thomas Chippendale, George Hepplewhite and Thomas Sheraton in the development of English furniture styles. Though he was not a cabinet-maker, Adam was one of the first to consider furniture fully worthy of an architect’s attention, on finding nothing suitable to compliment his classical interiors, he designed furniture to suit.
