Georgian Oak Cabriole Leg Lowboy George II C.1730
I am delighted to be able to offer this excellent example of antique English provincial oak furniture for sale.
The Lowboy dates to about 1730, and demonstrates some very well executed design features.
It has a deep 'ogee' shaped apron, and stands on 4 nicely shaped cabriole legs, each having fine flat pad feet. These are quite unusual and help provide a very well proportioned and balanced stature to the piece.
Each of the 3 drawers, and the top are crossbanded in a contrasting blend of country woods - walnut and beech, fashionable of the time and reflecting the styles of finer 'upmarket'walnut pieces of the period.
The top is also unusual in having rounded corners to all 4 sides - not being flat at the back to stand against a wall, so it may have been intended for a more central position in a room - perhaps at the foot of a bed or to the side of a sofa. Either way, a very nice feature.
The pine lining is of nailed construction and all appear to be original. The brass bail handles are original too.
A very clean and unblemished table of the early Georgian period.
