Some antiques furniture pieces stand out due to the quality of their craftsmanship – exceptional marquetry, finely cast ormolu, or ripping quality timber.
Others, whilst still exceptional, are defined by their sheer stature and therefore likely provenance. Clearly made for stately homes, they demand attention and have a presence born from scale and massive proportions. Today we look at one such piece in Windermere House, Ascot.
Windermere House – one of Brisbane’s most prestigious homes. Originally built and owned by James Sutherland in the late 1880’s, it has since been owned by several prominent Brisbane families.
This magnificent William IV Mahogany Console Table is of substantial proportions. It is an important 19th century English William IV carved mahogany console of very substantial proportions, the original shaped mahogany top above a profusely carved frieze in the form of flowers and leaves supported on a pair of carved cabriole legs.
The dimensions are 2900mm long, 740mm deep and 950mm high.
It is paired with another substantial piece – an exceptional 19th century French Louis XV gilded oval mirror, the central original mirror bordered by pierced carvings embellished with flowers, cherubs and leaves – an exceptional quality mirror of substantial proportions.
Both these magnificent pieces are available.
