A Splendid Pair of Console Tables In the Manner of William Kent

Constructed in gilt wood, very finely carved, with marble platforms in Bardiglio de Carrara; rising from swept cabriole legs with ‘hairy paw’ feet, adorned with foliates, terminating at the shoulders with lion masks, with annuli in their jaws, having pendant bouquets; female masks in the centres, with strong pendant swags of wreathed Oak leaves conjoining the masks; over, a running key motif to the aprons, framed within cannellures.
Excellent
The design of these tables relate to several examples inspired by William Kent. In particular a well documented table from Houghton Hall, Norfolk supplied to the Prime Minister, Robert Walpole. Kent was hugely inspired by the Grand Tour and brought Roman-influenced symbolic decoration like the Venus-shell and Jupiter’s sacred oak into fashion.
