A pair of George III giltwood console tables attributed to John Linnell with Japanese lacquer tops. These amazing tables retain much of the original gilding. The removable black marble socles are of later date. The Japanese lacquer tops, although original to the bases, are of much earlier manufacture and were originally intended for centre tables rather than console tables; they are therefore finished at their back edges. One table retains a paper label to the underside of the frame inscribed ‘Brynkinallt’ (for Brynkinalt Hall, Wales), and the companion table retains fragments of a label.
Exhibitions: Photographed: In situ at Brynkinalt Hall in the 1940s; one of the pair.
Viscount Dungannon, Brynkinalt Hall, Wales; Private collection, England.
