Gilded and Ebonised Console Table


A fine gilded and ebonised console table with poplar burl veneer with exquisite gilt detailing.

Its molded edge rectangular top features poplar burl veneer, while the pierced fretwork frieze adds an elegant touch. The table stands on chamfered legs with Pointe feet. This design draws inspiration from the Chinoiserie Lacquer Cabinets found in the Long Gallery at Althorp.

The term "Chinoiserie" originates from the French word "chinois," meaning Chinese. Referring to a style that emerged in the 18th century. Characterized by the elements of Chinese, Japanese, and other Asian cultures.

During the 18th century in Britain, China held an aura of mystery as it was perceived as a distant and enigmatic land. Despite increasing trade relations between Britain and China, access to China remained limited, and firsthand experiences of the country were rare. Chinoiserie, therefore, capitalized on these exotic and mysterious perceptions of China.
