  FINE GEORGE III MAHOGANY ADJUSTABLE TRIPOD READING STAND
England, c1790 (or earlier), in the Georgian “Gothick” Taste

 

 

Of very heavy dense Cuban (Jamaican) mahogany, carved in the Georgian “Gothick” taste, having a rectangular ratcheted top with bread-board ends and book-rest on a telescopic brass-mounted shaft ending in a Gothic knop, supported by a columnar shaft having three concave flutes raised on carved arched tripod legs ending in pad feet,

all subtly carved in the Gothic manner; also suitable as a side table

 

Note :

As yet, we have not found a known example of this stand.  However the originality of design, and the quality of execution and timbers recall the furniture of Thomas Chippendale Jr. and Gillows. The late 18th and early 19th century” Gothick” (Gothic) revival, unlike the 16-17 ecclesiastical references, was purely decorative in nature.

 

Condition : Excellent; re-gluing to a short shrinkage crack on the top; a few minor expected nicks and scratches;

good color and early finish; the top with a repolish and minor warp (visible in images); just excellent quality!

    

Height : 30”, closed / 59.75”, extended

Top : 21.5” x 17”
