Antique English Burl Walnut Table with Drawer circa 1880

This exceptionally elaborate antique English burl walnut table circa 1880 is inspired by the designs of the famous furniture firm of Gillows. The combination of the highly figured Burl walnut top and the intricately carved legs along with the entirely naturalistic stretcher indicates its origin as the late nineteenth century. This antique English table has a single drawer concealed in the apron enabling it to be used as a writing table but it just as easily could be an antique sofa or server table or a dazzling console table. Please enlarge all the additional photographs to see the details of both the walnut timber as well as the marvelous craftsmanship exhibited by the maker. The entire top possesses a serpentine profile with a moulded edge and a recessed apron. The book matched pattern of burl walnut that extends across the entire table top is visually dramatic and exciting while relating to the extravagantly carved supports at either end of this antique English table. Each end features a design of "C" shaped scrolls in a lyre form with legs that flare outward while standing on brass casters. The naturalistic motifs used on each end echo the pattern of the burl walnut seen on the top. The truly unique aspect of this walnut English table is the horizontal stretcher that connects the two end supports. The intertwined branches with leaves and bark simulates in walnut what Nature grows naturally and is an entirely unexpected element to see. In the mind of the designer and cabinet maker who created this table the spark was provided by the extraordinary beauty of the walnut timber. Their understanding of how the different needs, stability, attractiveness and usefulness could be tailored to achieve balance is most impressive.
