circa 1790 - 1800
A very fine late George III satinwood, ebony and rosewood card table in the manner of the Royal cabinet maker George Oakley.
The very generous rosewood banding that cross bands the highly figured satinwood top is shaped with canted corners and sits above a broad and handsome ebony inlaid frieze. The frieze is intricately inlaid with a 'Grecian Style' theme and centralised by a star like motif. The table top opens and swivels to reveal a green baize playing surface. The top is raised on four finely turned solid satinwood pillars and plinth base. The plinth base is decorated with ebony inlaid lozenge shapes and poker dots and sits on out-swept ebony inlaid legs that terminate on the original brass capped paw feet and castors.
The table is quality and displays all the hall marks of a top London workshop.
Excellent with no breaks to the legs are warping. The table has not been re-polished so will have old marks and scratches consistent with its age.
