Georgian Period Mahogany Two-Tier Dumbwaiter Table
A finely designed and executed dumbwaiter table, circa 1790. This example is particularly nice with its crisply carved waterleaf urn-finial on the top level. Perfectly formed from a solid block of mahogany, the urn elevates the table above its peers significantly. The robust graduated fluting around both balusters is most attractive and shows the distinct taste its designer had for the Neoclassical while still resting over the earlier cabriole leg. These dovetail into the underside of the lower baluster, each dynamic in its curvature with a raised upper edge and terminating in a simple club foot over an integral shoe, each rolling easily with their original brass castors. This example is a most interesting example with its unusually thick and robust column work. By having only two tiers, it remains restrained and does not dominate a room. A most fine addition for the classical living room in particular where it can serve conveniently as a side table between chairs or as a presentation piece in the corner of the room. Measurements: approx. 45” H, 25 1/2” W at first level, 21 1/2” W at second level Condition Report: Repaired crack in one ankle, old repaired cracks in baluster and finial. Old refinish with light scuffs, some color loss and abrasions to finish.
