This superb mid 19th century English country house Chippendale design candle stand is made to the correct scale from the best Cuban mahogany. It has a hexagonal top with a fine fretwork gallery that has been cut out of mahogany which has been made from three layers of thick veneer which adds great strength. It is supported by a turned column that is fluted and reeded on the upper section with an acanthus carved base with a detailed collar below. It stands on a tripod base again with carved acanthus on its legs and finely carved ball and claw feet. On the underside of the tripod, there is a handmade wrought iron spider support which is a detail you would find on the original.
This piece has probably been made as a direct one-off copy to match an original which would be a very rare and valuable piece. This is a unique opportunity to purchase this beautiful piece of English antique furniture which is approximately 150 years old and a fraction of the cost. It retains all the quality, craftsmanship and detailed design with fine timber and superb aged related colour and patination. This piece is not to be confused with a normal 19th century reproduction, it is much better.
