William Kent Eagle Console

   Click to enlarge

A carved gilt-wood console table in the style of William Kent and the reign of George II. The marble top rests above an egg and dart and Greek key pattern moulded frieze. The naturalistically carved eagle, with outstretched wings, stands on a rockwork base and is raised on a carved and moulded plinth.

As tables of this design were often intended to be placed in pairs, usually on pier walls, this model is conveniently available with the eagles facing towards each other.

William Kent (1685-1748). Kent conceived furniture as an integral part of a room; mirrors were hung en suite with pier tables and other furniture carefully placed, all of which formed part of his Palladian style. Members of the British aristocracy on the Grand Tour in Italy often bought rare marble slabs that were used for the tops of console, or side tables in great English houses.
