Very rare Gothic Chippendale triple top games table in remarkable original condition. (note the small size)
What an amazing survivor!
Even the original backgammon frame is with it in the built in storage flap under the fixed leaf (the frame fits in the 3rd top into bone lined holes).
The workmanship and condition is superb (note on the original handmade hinge screws, the slots are all lined up !).
The carving thorough out this antique card table is also superb.
The baroque cartouches embedded in the gothic blind fretting is the Best.
A vertually identical table is owned by the Duke of Beaufort.
Reference: "A HIstory of English Furniture - Age of Mahogany" by Percy Maquoid page 232 fig 215.
The feet are different, otherwise identical.
