This design and use of blind fretwork in this manner conforms to many illustrations in Thomas Chippendale’s – “The Gentleman & Cabinet Makers Director”. The table offered here may not be by Chippendale’s own workshop, but conforms closely to other Chippendale designs made by well regarded cabinet makers of the period, for example Wright and Elwick of Wakefield.
Portor is a relatively rare marble quarried in Italy and in Corsica. It is found in France, but very sparingly. A dark black colour scattered with yellow grooves. The most beautiful Portor is dark black with deep yellow veins, like golden flames. Its name most likely comes from the town of Porto Venere on the Genoese coast where Louis XIV exploited quarries for the decoration of Versailles. Used in the 17th, 18th and until the 20th century for beautiful furniture, objets d’art and fireplace mantels.
