An extremely rare and important mid 18th century carved mahogany octagonal tripod table, having a moulded top with low gallery, on a leaf carved column support terminating in acanthus carved scroll feet on blocks. Note: This table belongs to a group of very similar tables, all sharing the same column base with scroll legs. Most examples date from the 1750s, and this type of table must have been made during only a short period.
