463 Sold Superb Irish Rosewood Centre Table - Circa 1820 - Williams and Gibton Dublin

This is a Stunning Rosewood Centre Table dating to Circa 1820 and attributed to Williams and Gibton of Dublin. It is in superb condition and only required polishing from our Master Restorers (Lancaster Antiques) to bring back the deep rich Patina that had faded in the past 200 years. The Table's attribution is from two of Ireland's most famous Antique Dealers and eminent Members of Ireland's largest two Antique Dealer Associations, 'Irish Antique Dealers of Ireland' and 'The Premier Art and Antique Dealers of Ireland'. The top has a wonderful colour and scalloped edge so typical of Williams and Gibton and is supported by a solid rosewood column with crisply carved floral decoartion and base collar. The Table has a tripod base with powerfully carved feet and is a tour de force in furniture construction and a very fortunate find at auction here in Dublin.
