Regency Period Kingwood Parquetry Reversible Games Table

Regency Period Kingwood Parquetry Reversible Games Table

England

circa 1810

The shaped top has pierced galleried ends and a central sliding reversible section enclosing a chess board and back gammon well. It stands on hockey stick ends separated by turned spindles terminating in leaf-cast caps and castors. The spindle-lyre trestles relate to a pattern in the 1818 'Estimate Sketch Book' of Gillows of London and Lancaster executed for Ferguson, Whitesides & Co. who traded from Gillow's Oxford Street premises under their own name (G. Willis, 'Classic English Furniture', London 1974). Similar tables with spindle ends were supplied to the Tempests of Broughton Hall, North Yorkshire in the 1820s (S. Stuart, 'Gillows of London and Lancaster', Vol 1., p. 301, pl. 329).
