RARE GEORGE III ‘GONÇALO ALVES’ AND TULIPWOOD-BANDED SUPPER TABLE
England, c1790


 

Constructed of very rare and high quality South American woods, gon?alo alves, and tulipwood, the rounded rectangular top quarter

veneered, the diagonal patterning extending to the rounded tulipwood crossbanded drop leaves, the frieze with one real drawer, fitted with

a retracting felt-covered writing slide, and one opposing dummy drawer above a pair of concave brass-grilled doors opening to reveal a

cloth-lined grille enclosure, (also with a flat rear door now secured), the void enclosure with notches for adjustable shelves, the whole raised on

square tapering legs, terminating in brass caps and casters.

 

Note: Both gon?alo alves (similar to rosewood) and tulipwood (smelling like watermelon when cut) are extremely rare exotic woods

from South America, particularly Brazil, used in England for fine furniture for only a short period of time. 

 

Condition: Excellent; repolish to the top; rear door secured
