18th Century English George III Inlaid Mahogany Bowfront Antique Sideboard

About

An unusually powerful and substantial sideboard with presence and poise, this cabinet projects deeply with a full demilune curvature. The facade is arranged as a pair of outward swinging cabinet doors flanking a single board central drawer. All are inlaid with complex fans in the spandrels, framing ovoid panels of rich grained mahogany. Either end of the cabinet is fitted as a faux drawer replete with escutcheons and pulls to perfectly simulate the front of the case. The central apron undulates beautifully in a way that coordinates nicely against the curvature of the top. It retains a richness of patina and gorgeous mellowed cognac colouration that is most magnetic. The body rests over tapered legs with stringer inlay terminating in spade feet. It is a rich and inordinately Fine object for the classical home.
