An important and fine quality early 18th century Palladian period carved giltwood eagle console table attributed to Francis Brodie of Edinburgh, having a later rectangular ‘Yellow Benou Breccia’ marble top above a frieze with finely carved Vitruvian scroll, supported by a beautifully carved spreadwinged eagle standing on rockwork; on a plinth base with flowerhead moulded edge.

Note: The top has been at one stage reinstated to the original width. The pair to this table is illustrated in ‘Masterpieces of Queen Anne and Georgian Furniture’. Francis Brodie was the leading Edinburgh cabinet-maker of his time. Some documented pieces of furniture by Brodie have been preserved in the collection at Dumfries House, Ayrshire.
