19th Century Italian Occasional Table, Noel Coward

A 19th century Italian painted occasional table, purchased from Portmeirion (The Welsh Italian City) Gwynedd, North Wales and believed to have been the table on which Noel Coward wrote 'Blithe Spirit', the circular top painted in a mist green with white highlighted fruiting vine border raised upon eight curvilinear supports further supported by a carved leafy column terminating on three out swept cabriole legs with upturned feet.

Provenance; This table was formerly housed in Fountain Cottage at Portmeirion and sold by Director Michael Trevor Williams in the 1960's when the decision to modernise some of the village rooms. The original purchaser of this table was informed by Michael Trevor William that Noel Coward sat at this table and partly composed 'Blithe Spirit' during his stay at Fountain Cottage in 1941. This table has been privately owned since purchase and has recently been exhibited at Portmeirion Village the 'Dome of Discovey (2019) exhibition.

The table is in good sturdy condition considering its delicate construction and very much a usable piece of functional furniture, the hand painted decoration and green ground is in original untouched condition, areas of wear and loss. Watermarks and stains to the table top.
