An exceptional quality mid 18th century Chippendale period carved giltwood console table in the manner of Thomas Johnson, having a later ‘Brignoles Pink’ serpentine shaped marble top with moulded edge above a conforming shaped and pierced frieze finely carved with C-scrolls, leaves and flowers on a hatched background; on two cabriole legs with trailing leaves and flowers joined by a central pierced cabochon stretcher and terminating in scroll feet. Note: The design and execution are of the highest quality and typical of Johnson, who managed to create a lightness in design that was rarely surpassed.
