George III Writing Table, Mahogany Ca. 1800

England Ca. 1800

A fine quality faded mahogany English writing table with the same drawer configuration on each side. The overall plan of the facade and plain round tapered leg with a half bulbous carving at the top was being produced at least as early as 1795. The drawer facings are trimmed at the edges by a single inlaid ebony line. The writing surface is gold tooled leather that is also faded. The long rectangular boxes mounted on the top containing two drawers each are for writing implements.

Rococo Style Wall Sconces, Carved and Silver Gilt Pair

Hand carved pine with gesso and patinated oxidized silver gilt. They appear to be 1st quarter of the 20th Century and electrified around the same time or a little later. The original models for these suggest 18th Century England as they are more slender than many of the heavier Continental examples.
