Favourite Item
An outstanding and unusual pair of mid 18th century carved mahogany side tables in the manner of William Kent. The original slightly concave statuary white marble tops on conforming frieze with blind fretted Vitruvian scroll and moulded edge; on four boldly carved cabriole legs terminating in pad feet.

Mereworth Castle was built in the Palladian style, and was modelled on Italian houses such as the Villa Rotunda. The Palladian style was fashioned in England by architects such as Inigo Jones and William Kent, who took their inspiration from the Grand Tour. Like the Villa Rotunda, Mereworth Castle has a central domed hall and it was for this large circular hall that these tables were originally made.
