REF No. 7159
A Fine & Rare Pair of Consoles of the George IV Period
H: 36.5 in / 92 cm W: 40 in / 102 cm D: 14.5 in / 37 cm
Constructed in Rosewood and Giltwood, the radiused angled plinth base having front tapering reeded and carved Giltwood columns, with a mirror back panel, supporting an apron with a conformingly shaped Carrara marble top. Circa 1825.
These pieces have marked affinities with the work of Morel & Hughes, and elements of the design may be noted in Thomas King’s ‘The Modern Style of Cabinet Work Exemplified’ of `1829, and Rudolph Ackermann’s ‘Repository of the Arts’ published monthly between 1808 until 1829.
