Item Description

An Anglo-Indian Late Regency Period Penwork Games or Chess Table.

This lovely table is ebonised and decorated with inlaid panels in the tripartite platform base and penwork on the top. Supported by a turned central column. The two ivory rings and wonderful reeded bun feet are clear indicators that this piece was produced in India for the English market. The games board, which can be used for draughts or chess etc., has a beautiful border of English taste penwork with scrolls, flowers and exotic birds in the chinoiserie style. The inlay on the feet is of a more formal character associated with baroque ornament in Europe. This table is a fusion of design influences, of cultures and of cabinetmaking techniques.

A highly decorative piece of furniture.
