20ft Georgian styled four pedestal dining table by Andrew Christie.
A 20ft Georgian styled four pedestal dining table by Andrew Christie. Made of Brazilian mahogany with a satinwood crossbanding and ebony stringing. The central pillars raised on quatrefoil reeded splayed legs terminating with lion paw brass feet, uniquely cast for this table. All elements of this table from the hand planed tops, to the hand-cut screws and table fork receivers were made to achieve a table as authentic to original George III period as possible. Every single inch of this table was checked for signs of a new build but none where found.
The client had a very highly regarded antique dealer to assess its age of this table a few months after delivery and he deemed it to be worthy of making a huge offer for it. In the period of the early 90s when we made the table, the originals of this quality and size were fetching £30,000-50,000. A testament to the fact that using traditional methods and tools and with attention to detail, it is possible to confuse even experts in their field. Not a fake, it's an authentic copy!. Its all about the story that goes with the item. All Georgian furniture has a history. To be sure of authenticity provenance is the defining element to be sure you have what you have paid for. Not as important with items such as this as there are not many left with the knowledge to create a patina in wood.
With fine paintings its a very different story, many fine artists turned to copying earlier masters works. In truth, real or fake, when the line is a fine one, quality = by a seriously skilled hand. Seriously skilled hand = Quality. Quality = charm, character, alluring, sometimes even bewildering. If these are the feelings it gives you. You have chosen well regardless.
