An extremely rare and highly important brass and mother of pearl inlaid carved mahogany tripod table attributed to Frederick Hintz having a ten-lobed tip-up top with five-lobed centre dish divided by a shaped field finely inlaid with engraved mother of pearl and brass flowers and accentuated with fine brass line, supported on a fluted gun barrel column with spirally fluted knop; on three humanoid legs in breeches and shoes with inlaid brass buckles. Note: There is only one other model with this unusual type of leg known. It is virtually identical and in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
