Regency Pollard Oak and Marble Chess Table by G. Bullock to Designs by T. Hope

24,500.00

Attributable to George Bullock with design features similar to a table of Thomas Hope, illustrated in the book on “Thomas Hope by David Watkin” pl 98, page 227, and now in the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. A wonderful pollard oak chess table with specimen marble top and faux bronze applied decoration. The octagonal marble set into rectangular top supported by inverted lyre shaped standard ends joined by a turned stretcher, on concealed castors. There is a single divided drawer for chess pieces. Much like the taste for faux rosewood paint effects of the day the applied acanthus, gadrooning, frieze, rosettes and claw feet on this table are patinated plaster to look like bronze.

Circa 1810
