February Newsletter from Mallett


Welcome to the February newsletter from Mallett.

We began this month with a successful time at the American International Fine Art Fair, with the display of both contemporary and antique items on the Mallett stand credited as showing 'the true potential in decorating with different eras' (Blouin Art Info).

We will also be at the Palm Beach Show 15th-19th February, more details on this and TEFAF below.

We hope you enjoy our latest selection of acquisitions in this newsletter and the pieces that we will be presenting in the coming months in London, New York and at the fairs.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any further details on any pieces below or online.

Serving Tables

A Pair of Irish Mahogany Serving Tables

A pair of large-scale early 19th century carved mahogany serving tables, attributed to Gillingtons.

Both tables have a gadrooned edge, with acanthus leaf scroll carved knees and paw feet. The triangular pedimented backs are carved with palmette motifs.

The Gillington brothers, George and Samuel, are recorded at various addresses and in various partnerships in Dublin, 1815 to 1838.

The serving table is photographed in the Grey Room at Ely House with a Chinoiserie Panel and a rare pair of late 19th century
Venetian Candelabra.
