French Painted Pine Side Table c.1890

The provincially made French pine carcass showing the wonderful original peacock blue and ivory white paint layers, worn thoroughly and consistently with age, with the top with five planks with remnants of the peacock blue paint, over a frieze drawer with original cup handles, opening to reveal a vacant interior, the whole raised on tapering block legs with remnants of both coloured craquelured paints, and surviving from the late nineteenth century.

The rustic and provincially made carcass has a wonderful patina to its paint, with a host of character and craquelure commensurate with its age and heavy use. The cup handles are original and there have been no additions to the piece since its creation. There is some gaps to the top between some of the planks, and wear and tear that one would expect to see. Overall it could be used as is and enjoyed as a beautiful decorative piece.

A very evocative, versatile and decorative table that could be used for occasional dining, as a hall or side table or desk.

'Doe & Hope specialise in decorative, rare and unusual antiques from around the world with a particular interest in the atmosphere that surrounds an object, taking a cinematic approach in the presentation of our inventory. Our house style is probably best described as theatrical; being a concoction of old money, dramatic decorative, and faded gentility, with common themes of both humour and the macabre running through our inventory, that includes both academic and playful objects.

We are members of LAPADA and were included in Homes & Antiques '50 Best Antique Shops' in the UK for 2016. We have had a concession in the prestigious Liberty of London department store in 2015 and have also won the Antiques Young Gun of the Year award for 2014.
