A Victorian carved walnut and marble mounted centre table, circa 1860, the oval grey veined white marble top within a repeated acanthus carved edge, the pierced frieze decorated with fruiting branch swags interspersed with armorial shields, one crowned armorial flanked by twin rampant lions and titled 'CHABLAIS' beneath, with an alternate armorial opposing, the stem formed of a profusely carved flowering basket, each shaped and profusely acanthus and scroll carved leg surmounted by a mask, two depicting male masks, the other two female, on carved scroll feet, 81cm high, 150cm wide, 110cm deep
For a related centre table by Strahan & Co. , see Sothebys Important English Furniture, 5th June 2007, lot 244. The overall design and profuse carving in addition to the use of four specific figures/ masks to the base is similar to the current table being offered. Strahan and Co. of Dublin were founded in 1776 and by the mid-nineteenth century were trading from several premises in the city. At this stage Strahan, who had exhibited first at the Dublin exhibition of 1853, appear to have been influenced stylistically both by the robust classicism of Thomas Hope and by the neo-Elizabethanism of designers like Richard Bridgens. The same could be said of the current table. This specific type of table owes something to the by-then-celebrated 'sea-dogs' table acquired by Bess of Hardwick by 1601 and still at Hardwick Hall, Derbyshire
Good condition for age.
