A pair of late 18th century George III Sheraton demi-lune card tables of superb colour throughout. The tops with fabulous book matched veneers, having two broad marquetry bands surrounding an inner mahogany lozenge with marquetry flowers, both opening to reveal a baize interior, above a plain frieze with square tapering legs and further marquetry floral inlay, terminating in spade feet.

These tables are the essence of Sheraton’s design of a simple line, paired back in the design of furniture to allow for the extravagant use of exotic veneers. Often used as a backdrop for the quintessential English appreciation of flowers and nature in their sophisticated marquetry; where taste was moving away from the neo-classical influence of Italian and Greek decoration, to a more simplified form before the resurgence of French design, remodelled into a much more affluent taste.
