A rare George II laburnum kettle stand of unusual form. The circular top with turned dished surround over a multi-ring turned and tapering column with an emanating claw shaped tri-from base, linked by an inverted triangular stretcher, the solid laburnum legs flanked by a pair of turned roundels, with carved step-foot. An extremely rare piece with use of fine quality timber throughout.
The type of base on this piece preceed,s and probably was an inspiration for, the more intricate tri-form base found on furniture made by Thomas Chippendale and illustrated in "The Gentleman and Cabinet Maker’s Director", which was first published in 1754. Laburnum was used primarily as a veneer from late seventeenth century, particularly in parquetry It has dark rich blackish-brown colour, the use of this timber in the solid in this piece would indicate that it was probably commissioned for a wealthy important client.
Excellent. Minor old restorations, waxing.
From a collector in the South West.
