Russian Neoclassical Parcel-Gilt Satinwood and Marquetry Side Table, circa 1785


A fine circa 1785 Russian satinwood one drawer side table with top having elaborate centre foliate inlays of boxwood, palisander, and fruitwood in banded oval, with palisander banded edge surmounting inlaid ribbon-tied swag frieze on all four sides above carved gilt spiral-ribbon banding on square parcel gilt tapering panel-carved supports with rosette corner blocks above gilt bellflower motifs ending in unique square tapering block-form plinth feet. This table is attributed to the workshop or follower of cabinetmaker Christian Meyer and adeptly shows Meyer's early predilection for English design and motifs after the designs of Robert Adam and George Hepplewhite. Biography: Meyer, Christian circa 1750, exact date of death unknown. An outstandingly gifted Russian cabinet-maker, who was active in St. Petersburg in the last quarter of the 18th century. He worked especially for the imperial family and the St. Petersburg aristocracy. Literature: Chenevière, Antoine. Russian Furniture: The Golden Age 1780-1840. NYC: The Vendome Press, 1988.
