SOLD TO A PRIVATE INTERNATIONAL COLLECTION
An extremely rare and important one-off commissioned oak table designed by the top British architect-designer,
Charles Francis Annesley Voysey (1857-1941).
Executed for him by the top Cotswold School cabinetmaker craftsman, Peter van der Waals (1870-1937).
Approx 50" wide, 32" high, 23" depth.
This table was part of a larger commission for his client CT Burke, Esq., of Holly Mount, Knotty Green, Buckinghamshire (the house also designed by Voysey). This included other pieces of furniture and also of course the rare ebony cased mantle clock we have, also made by Peter Waals, whose skills Voysey held in very high regard (see last image).
The original drawing for this table is held at the RIBA archives in the V&A Museum in London.
