Antique pair of console tables
A fine pair of Regency console tables in the manner of Thomas Hope: gilt lion monopodia legs, rosewood frieze with brass mounts. The tops replaced in black sandstone which was often used with Irish furniture.
Provenance: A House near Waterford.
The framing on the backs is curved for a curved room though we have made the tops with a straight back edge.
English tables made in in the Thomas Hope style would generally have a platform below the legs whereas the Irish equivalent are often made without the platform bases - there is a similar but less fine pair at Birr Castle, County Offaly
