Large Late 18th Century Hepplewhite Figured Mahogany Serpentine Kneehole Desk

$17,538.81

About

A large late 18th century Hepplewhite figured Mahogany serpentine kneehole desk with shaped square edge top above two banks of three graduated drawers, large fitted centre drawer above a kneehole and a panelled cupboard beneath; reeded side columns, fitted brass side carrying handles and standing on tapering turned legs with unusual brass socket castors. George Hepplewhite (1727–21 June 1786) was a cabinetmaker. He is regarded as having been one of the “big three” English furniture makers of the 18th century, along with Thomas Sheraton and Thomas Chippendale. There are no pieces of furniture made by Hepplewhite or his firm known to exist but he gave his name to a distinctive style of light, elegant furniture that was fashionable between circa 1775 and 1800 and reproductions of his designs continued through the following centuries. One characteristic that is seen in many of his designs is a shield-shaped chair back, where an expansive shield appeared in place of a narrower splat design.
