George III Antique English Oak Server Table Dresser Base circa 1770
The handsome profile of this antique English oak dresser base server table remains as desirable today as when it was created two and half centuries ago. Hand crafted of native oak and then cross banded with precious mahogany imported from the equatorial possessions of England at great expense this table stands upon cabriole legs at the front and straight legs at the rear. The elegant curve of the cabriole was a combination of the leg developed during the Queen Anne period as well as the leg seen at the French court during the reign of Louis XV. Be sure to enlarge the additional photographs and look at the hand finished surface seen overt he entire table. The front legs are joined by a well balanced and symmetrical apron with a shaped pattern of curves that complements the brass handles on each of the three drawers. All of the drawers have a beaded edge and a wide inlaid border of mahogany cross banding. In the eighteenth century when the only interior illumination came from a fire and lit candles the contrast between the colour and grain pattern of oak and mahogany was quite apparent and formed an integral part of the design of furniture. In addition to the drawer fronts the top of this George III period dresser base server table also features mahogany cross banding. Used as the only antique in a contemporary interior or as part of a collection the pureness of this iconic eighteenth century table will enhance any home.
