Linnell Marquetry Console Tables (Pair)


An extraordinarily fine pair of marquetry inlaid console tables having a lattice pattern harewood top inlaid with etched boxwood, the molded edge of gilded brass over an inlaid harewood apron inset with faux boxwood fluting and rosettes banded by a second ormolu molding at the bottom of the apron on square tapered legs inlaid with boxwood interwoven vines capped with a flower terminating in ormolu feet, the legs connected by stretchers (likely added after the original manufacture).

The condition of the etched inlay is spectacularly fresh. The tables resemble a table illustrated in Helena Hayward and Pat Kirkham's, "William and John Linnell), (illustration 309) from Heveningham Hall. John Linnell was a contemporary and rival to Thomas Chippendale. Ht. 33.5", W. 51.5" D. 20.5" Photo of the tables in situ published in Country Life Magazine, Oct. 2, 1958, Donnington Grove, Berkshire--III, home of Ms. Daisy Fellowes.

The stretchers on the tables have been retained to maintain the history of the tables which are for their extraordinary condition and richness almost unique among pairs of console tables. Their attribution to John Linnell, despite the lack of original bills for a definitive provenance, is fairly certain.
