Early 19th Century Regency Period Carved Giltwood Marble Top Console Table

England
Circa 1805
The "Black Marquina" marble top is original to the console table and sits on a gilt frieze with gilded brass acanthus leaf mounts. The scrolled cabriole supports are carved with bell flowers, lotus leaves, stiff leaf decoration and fitted to rectangular uprights that stand on moulded plinths. The fitted mirror plate is original to the console table and sits on a faux marble plinth that simulates the Italian marble "Portor" that is found on the island of Porta Venere, La Spezia, Toscana

On the back of the console table is the remainder of the maker's label, thought to be the trade label of Thomas Fentham who is recorded as a carver, gilder, glass grinder and picture frame maker working from 1774-1825 from various addresses in The Strand in London.

The firm of Thomas Fentham & Co were amongst the most pre-eminent looking glass and picture frame manufacturers in Regency England. The firm was founded by Thomas Fentham in 1777 and traded from numerous addresses in The Strand throughout its history. From 1793, Fentham was trading from 136 The Strand and upon his death in 1808, the company was taken over by his son Thomas John Fentham and his son in law John Bainbridge.

Fentham was a customer of the specialist ornament maker George Jackson and the company undertook numerous society commissions throughout their history including the Earl of Egremont.
