Arts & Crafts Oak Side Table in the Manner of Augustus Pugin
An important and striking oak side table in the manner of Augustus Pugin. The emphasis of this table being the revealed jointing system and the use of Gothic detailing both typical qualities of the Arts and Crafts movement. The marble top unusual for its subtle curve, above a plain frieze with chamfered edge centred by a simple carving, with cross lap joints at each corner terminating in trefoil form carvings, above boldly turned legs raised on shaped bracket feet and united by a stretcher all hand carved and finished with chamfered edges and echoing the trefoil carving used elsewhere on the table. English, circa 1870
