EARLY 20TH CENTURY ANTIQUE CHIPPENDALE STYLE CONCH SHELL INLAY MAHOGANY LIFT TOP BUTLERS / COCKTAIL COFFEE TABLE.
Thank you for shopping with Bay Colony Antiques. We're a third generation family owned business furnishing homes all over the world. We aggressively pursue important antiques, decorative arts, and objects of interest for our most discerning clients.
We're excited to offer for sale this great early 20th century Chippendale style conch shell inlay lift top butlers table. We believe this is an english table as many were made there during this time period. The table has an off the charts masterfully inlaid central conch shell. The maker had a great attention to detail executed to perfection. The conch shell is amid a fruit wood field with a slight green tint to it. The design of the shell truly is a cut above most. The darker effect on the shell is created by burning the inlay in hot sand and this is masterfully done. The table and lift top tray are crafted from old growth mahogany with a raised & molded edge. We noted a minimal warp to the butlers tray as pictured but this is an exotic wood in a foreign climate roughly ~100 years old. The base has flared legs with a cross stretcher for additional stability and support. This table measures 29" wide x 20" deep x 19" tall.
