George III Giltwood Console Table.

This exceptional table epitomises the height of the rococo style in the middle of the eighteenth century in Britain. Combining elaborate carving with a lightness of handling which was a new departure from the heavier baroque side tables seen earlier in the century.

Elaborately carved pier or console tables, described by Thomas Chippendale as 'frames for marble slabs', were developed in the second quarter of the 18th century and were suitable vehicles for exhibiting the fashionable rococo style in drawing rooms, entrance halls or in some cases dining rooms, the likely setting of this table with its vine and grape festoons and Bacchic mask. The composition of the frieze relates closely to a design for a pair of giltwood consoles in the manner of Thomas Johnson formerly in the Viscounts Hambledon collection, sold Christie's London 4 July 2013, lot 38.
