With Triple Cupid's Bow Apron

English c. 1780
33.75” high x 72” wide x 17.5” deep
A delightfully restrained and elegantly proportioned Georgian Serving Dresser in honey coloured and well figured solid elm. The slightly overhanging and moulded top is set above three frieze drawers with scratch carved simulated cock beading these are housed above an apron of three stylised cupids bow form and all raised on plain square provincial Chippendale style legs. This example is in fine original condition, retaining the original brass handles and escutcheons and benefits from a good original untouched surface and light golden honey colour. A prime example of the form from the second half of the C18th. The understated classic lines and appealing texture of this piece help render it compatible with multiple interior schemes, where it can serve as a console, a server or behind a sofa.
