Mahogany Pier Table attr. Quervelle

Lot 0336 Details

Description
American Classical Carved, Ebonized and Gilded Mahogany Pier Table, c. 1825, attr. to Anthony G. Quervelle, Philadelphia, marble top, bolection frieze, robustly scrolled acanthus carved supports, paw feet, mirrored back with stenciled border flanked by columnar stiles, shaped lower plinth, lobed feet, h. 38 in., w. 46 in., d. 21 in. Note: The high style pier table offered here is a superb example of the work of Philadelphia cabinetmaker Anthony G. Quervelle. Featuring scrolled supports ending in paw feet, a signature element of Quervelle pier tables, the table is related to several examples illustrated in the Boor publication Philadelphia Empire Furniture. Among these examples, the table in the present lot shares many similar features as a Quervelle pier table made for the White House under President Andrew Jackson, including the intricately carved scrolled supports, gadrooned molding, gilt stencil decoration, a similarly shaped lower shelf, and ebonized and gilt lobed feet.
