A Rare James I Oak “Credence” Table

The thick octagonal top, folding back on the original hinges, which retain traces of silvering, above three frieze rails, decorated with carved, stylised leaves set into a lunette, above delicately arch-shaped aprons, with small applied lozenge bosses. A particularly rare feature of the top section are the turned ball-shaped pendants, which hang to either side of the table. The columnar legs are very well turned, with discoid rings to the centres, and are joined at the bottom by the original boarded shelf, set onto run-moulded rails.

The lunette decoration and overall very high quality of joinery would suggest this piece was made in South Gloucestershire/Wiltshire.

Circa 1620.

Width 38 inches, depth 19 inches, height 32 inches.

Ref 2429
