england , circa 1780

A magnificent and rare George III Chippendale period mahogany  serving table, the cross-banded top with serpentine front and sides and concave corners. The fluted frieze with exquisite inlaid and engraved oval paterae above each of the six stop fluted tapering legs with shaped block feet.

This wonderfully shaped serving table is a classic example of its period.

With untouched patina, and consequently excelllent colour throughout.


Presumably Walter Blunt of Wallop Manor, Hampshire and by descent to
General Blunt of Adderbury Manor, thence by marriage and descent to
The Countess of Cromartie, Castle Leod, Easter Ross, Scotland

A set of hall chairs with the Blunt family crest and motto painted onto the backs are recorded. They relate very closely in design to the hall chairs supplied by Thomas Chippendale to the Lascelles family at Harewood House, and a Chippendale attribution is a firm possibility. Stylistically the Blunt hall chairs compare closely to the overall design and feel of this superb table, and they are clearly part of the same original apparently undocumented commission.
