England, circa 1720
An exceptional and very rare George I gilt gesso concertina-action card table in the manner of James Moore.
The shaped foldover top decorated throughout with deeply carved scrolling foliage centred by a flower head on a pounced ground, the top opening to reveal a velvet lined playing surface with counter wells and candle stands, the whole standing on slightly cabriole legs terminating in claw and ball feet.
One of only three or four known examples.
