Description: A fine George III mahogany serpentine serving table in the manner of Robert Adam. The well figured serpentine top over a fluted frieze with central tablet with leaf oval centre flanked by bell flower swags and a moulded lower edge. The table is supported on four square section tapering legs, with floral pattarae to the hip and terminating in block feet. The table has excellent colour and patina throughout.
Further Information: Robert Adam’s 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. This table bears all the hallmarks of Adam’s design and purpose and stands beautifully to grace an important dining room or hallway.
