Today we are happy to offer for sale a beautiful antique Edwardian poly-chrome hand painted neoclassical console table!
This large and elegant piece is the epitome of refined taste and craftsmanship. The console table is finely crafted and detailed and dates from the Edwardian period where the Adam style from the 18th century was en vogue once more. The Adam style is an 18th-century neoclassical style of interior design and architecture, as practiced by the three Scottish brothers Robert Adam (1728–1792), James Adam (1732–1794) and William Adam, of whom Robert and James were the most widely known. The Adam style found its niche from the late 1760s in upper-class and middle-class residences in 18th-century England, Scotland, Russia (where it was introduced by Scottish architect Charles Cameron), and post-Revolutionary War United States (where it became known as Federal style and took on a variation of its own).
The piece features a finely carved wood body, with demi-lune half circle top, and neoclassical Louis XVI-style delicate tapered and fluted legs terminating in dainty feet. The console table was expertly hand-painted by a talented and skilled artist. The designs are of the utmost quality and execution. The table features a warm pale yellow/cream ground adorned with a multitude of neoclassical design motifs. The fluting in the legs is highlighted by a pale brown painted finish; the tops of the legs are adorned with trompe l’oeil rosettes. The apron features a gold and blue shell and anthemion continuous motif. The piece-de-resistance of the console is the fabulous top surface featuring an interlaced and floral border on a pale sage ground framing neoclassical motif medals dangling from delicate blue silk ribbons encircling a neoclassical fan medallion.
Table presents beautifully and is in very good antique condition, with minor wear, scuffing and patina commensurate with age. There are a few expected minor losses/scratches to painted finish – please examine and zoom in on all photos.
This large console table will look stunning gracing an entrance hall, and can also be used as a dining room sideboard. The piece’s lightness and airiness make it versatile and the perfect large-scale accent piece for any interior. Fresh to the market from a Newport, Rhode Island estate!
