A Fine Classical Carved Parcel Gilt, Vert Antique, Stenciled
and Ormolu Mounted Figured Mahogany Marble Top Pier
Table, New York, c.1825, attributed to Meeks
This is an outstanding
pier table that makes a very strong statement, using
many of the bells and whistles of the classical style.
It is simply the best of its type. Note the strong
paw feet and the acanthus carving above, and this
is as good as it gets. Also note the fully developed
capitals above the desirable marble columns, also,
note the original ormolu mounts. Also, of note is
the marble top, which is absolutely original
Lastly, please click

at the Metropolitan Museum in New York, and note the
similarity of lower bases, they are obviously from
the same shop.
