Freshfords Fine Antiques is a family business started by my father, Alan, in 1987 in the City of Bath where he traded for 10 years as Beau Nash House Antiques. I joined my father in 1997 when we renamed the business Freshfords Fine Antiques. My father retired in 2005 and the business is now located in a purpose-built showroom 7 miles south of Bath.Read more about us
circa 1820 - 1830
A crisply carved early 19th century Regency period rosewood console table.
The original marble top is 'Porta' and is from the island of Porto Venere, Tuscany, Italy. It was predominantly used in the mid 17th, 18th and 19th centuries for decorating furniture. The Porta marble sits on a highly figured rosewood frieze above the original mercury plate mirror and supported on crisply carved 'S' scroll supports.
The scroll supports are carved with acanthus leaf decoration and 'C' scrolls and sweep down to crisply carved paw feet that stand on a rosewood veneered plinth base with an inset carved moulding.
The marble table is quite possibly from the workshops of Gillows of London and Lancaster and is of the highest quality.
