A Carved Mahogany George II Concertina Action Games
Table, English / Irish, c.1760
Starting with the open
talon claw & ball feet, a rarity, this table has
it all. It has the desireable concertina action, which
makes for a very sturdy table, and highly sought after
by collectors. The legs have leaf carving on the knees
with uniquely pronounced scrollwork. In addition to
its original drawer and hardware, this table is in
a fine original state of preservation. Its scale is
very dynamic, as the claw and ball feet are very well
developed, and connote a strong stance.
This table is the best of its kind,
and retailed in New York by Hyde Park Antiques, Ltd.,
an outfit known for high quality antiques.
There are no repairs or alterations.
