Vintage Demi-Lune Mahogany Console Table
We are thrilled to offer this beautiful and exceptionally constructed vintage mahogany console table. This is in the classic Victorian style with gothic influence.
This is a beautiful table. It has a custom glass top that sits on the semi circle.
The demi-lune (or "half-moon") table top is accented with cedar which is bordered by thin, inlaid banding.
As you can see, the table top features semi-rounded cyma moulding which leads the eye to the decoratively carved apron.
The apron boasts masterfully hand-carved florals and acanthus leaves (a favorite among mid 18th century craftsmen).
Three decorated cabriole legs at the front and sides are secured by scroll carved stretchers and terminate with small whorl-style feet.
Each stretcher is securely affixed to the legs with a mortise and tenon joint.
You will note that the mahogany bears a rich, reddish hue which has slightly oxidized. The color and patina add a great deal of desirability to the piece.
The table top exhibits some chipping and staining while the legs show some minor scratching here and there.
A custom made tempered glass half-moon rests on the table, thereby preventing any further scratching.
Despite some minor condition issues, this elegant formal table remains in good vintage condition and serves as a shining example of the Queen Anne style at its best.
Measurements: Table is 24 1/4" tall and 26 1/4" wide, Table top is 23 1/4" wide, 13 1/4" deep and 7/8" tall (4 1/2" tall with apron) Weight: 14 lbs., 1 oz.
