A Rare Mahogany Hepplewhite Card Table
Pieces from the Hepplewhite period often emphasize clean lines and finely grained wood. This card table is no exception. What makes it particularly rare is the eglomise cherub in the center of the table. The top is notched with line inlay. The open table is supported with a reverse leg. The legs taper with inlay cuffs at the base of the legs.
Materials and Techniques:
Mahogany with reverse glass cherub image.
