    Rare 18th Century George III Mahogany Irish Wolf Foot Tripod Table, Circa 1760
    A fine and possibly unique mid-18th-century George III mahogany tray-top tripod table, Circa 1760-1770. Ireland

    The solid one-piece moulded tray top is set with a fine parquetry star inlay over the solid stop-fluted column, leading to a finely carved gadrooned baluster and is raised on three cabriole legs. Each carved to the knee with a flower, sprigs of acanthus terminating in the most wonderful and unusual hairy wolf feet, raised on what appear to be the original brass casters.

    It should be noted that the table is of original colour and well patented throughout with no breaks or signs of restorations. The table retains its original bearers, block and banjo latch.

    Further reading:

    Tripod tables of this form gained popularity in England during the reign of King George II and continued into the late 18th century. They have remained fashionable to the present day, however, the golden age for this model is from 1760-1770 when some of the very finest examples were commissioned by cabinet makers such as Thomas Chippendale and Henry Hill.

    Good. Wear consistent with age and use.
