Constructed with a finely carved pierced fretwork gallery, with a dentil top and gadroon moulded frieze below. The Chippendale style table boasts a decorative candle slide, with the original miniature brass knob. The table stands on a fluted tapering pedestal, decorated with scrolling bulbous acanthus leaves, above three cabriole legs, which are also decorated with trailing acanthus leaves to the knees and terminating on scroll toes.

This is an ideal occasional table to display silver or photo frames around the house, or for use as lamp table.

Gostins of Liverpool was started by David Simpson, sponsored by the Princes’ Trust, with the objective to train young apprentices in fine quality English cabinetmaking skills, something which has been lost to time over the last 100 years. They replicated a lot of designs from Speak Hall in Liverpool. The company went out of production in the 1990’s as they could not afford to make furniture to such a high standard, after the advent of the owners’ death. All furniture was handmade and it was usually stamped with their name.
This is a fine quality English Chippendale style table, ideal for use as a silver or occasional table, constructed of solid mahogany, with a pierced fretwork gallery and candle slide on a pedestal, made by Gostins of Liverpool, circa 1970, in excellent original condition. The Chippendale style table has been cleaned and French polished by hand to a professional standard in our workshop, therefore the colour and patination is of an excellent standard. Nominal old use marks to the top, frame and leading edges but nothing significant considering the age of the item (see photos). The pierced fretwork is in excellent original complete condition, given how fragile it looks. The pedestal is sturdy and there are no breaks to the legs. This Chippendale style table is solid in joint and ready to use.
