A GEORGE III MAHOGANY SIDE TABLE A fine mid 18th century Chippendale period carved mahogany side table with a later rectangular brèche de Medici marble top; on a frieze having egg and dart moulding and Greek key blind fret with floral moulding below; on four square fluted legs with carved angle brackets terminating in guttae feet. This table is of transitional design combining elements from Kentian architecture, like the bold egg and dart moulding and the Greek key pattern, with later Chippendale elements like the fluting, guttae feet and floral moulding. The unusual angle brackets which sever like a bracing between legs and frieze are of even earlier design and can be found on tables from some thirty years earlier.
