Description A possibly unique George III wine stand attributed to Thomas Chippendale, the pineapple finial over fluted column over three chamber bottle holder with original brass liners, the edges deeply molded, over another fluted column over dish turned top, the final graduated shaft supported by carved and scrolled legs having original leather barrel castors, the whole fashioned from richly grained mahogany.
This bottle stand shares many features found on documented examples from Thomas Chippendale's workshop. A similar husked pineapple finial, for example, can be found on a firescreen at Dumfies House and lanterns at Nostell Priory and Harewood House. The three graduated fluted columns with turned collars are similar or identical to many in Chippendale's oeuvre, such as that on the tea tables at 19 Arlington Street, Aske Hall and candle stands at Paxton. The three legs though are by far the most compelling reasons for a Chippendale attribution. Based on manuscript drawings at Harewood House (illustrated Christopher Gilbert "Thomas Chippendale". 464 & 466) many candle stands or "fly tables" have been attributed to Chippendales workshop. They all share a variation of the inward scrolled foot, the molded top edge and carved sides found on the present example. The leather box castors are also commonly found on pieces from Chippendale's St. Martin's Lane workshop.
