An IMPORTANT, exceptional, unique and extremely rare marquetry candle stand C.1675-1690.

The octagonal Paduke banded marquetry top depicts an exquisitely executed parrot to the centre, surrounded by fine spring flowers in holly, sycamore and tropical hardwoods. The vibrant green stained leaves of bone bring such vibrance and colour to the marquetry, a detail most likely adopted from the influx of Huguenot cabinet makers in England, in the 17th century. Supported by a figured walnut six-sided tapering column, terminating on scroll legs of walnut, with original inverted walnut finial. The top is fixed to the base with its original hand cut wooden screw thread.

ORIGIANL
The provenance of this piece couldn't be better coming from 'The Metropolitan Museum Of Art' in New York'.
‘English Furniture 1660-1714’, by Adam Bowett, page 121-124, 279
A table of the same period and notably similar marquetry - Adam Bowett “English Furniture 1660 -1714” Pl 4-21, which was probably supplied by the London cabinet maker Thomas Pistor to James Grahme, a friend and courtier to James, Duke of York (later James II in 1684)
