An Outstanding George II Oak Tripod Table

The magnificent oval top, cut from a single board of pollard or burr oak. The shape of the top dictated by the size and shape of the piece of timber it was cut from. The extreme outer edges just showing signs of the pale sapwood, the joiner or cabinet maker has gone right to the edges of the burr to maximise the size – and hence the effect.

The top is supported on two bearers hinged to a square block above the well-turned vase-shaped column, terminating in down-curving cabriole legs.

Fantastic rich colour and patina – probably the best piece of burr wood I have seen on a tripod table.

English, circa 1740-50.

Top 26.5 x 20 inches, height 28 inches.

Ref TW1959
