Stowe: A Pair of George III Kingwood and Brass Inlaid Card Tables
England, circa 1770

An exceptional pair of George III serpentine kingwood and brass inlaid concertina-action card tables attributed to John Cobb. In the French taste, the fold-over tops quarter-veneered and with a moulded edge, each fitted with a kingwood cross-banded bordered baize playing surface and underneath a sliding tray with a container for cards, with a shaped similar veneered and brass strung frieze, standing on elegant cabriole legs terminating in elaborate ormolu sabots. Each table with the most outstanding ormolu mounts to the knees. Of superb colour throughout.
