An extremely rare and unique opportunity to acquire a table of historical importance in the history of Liberty’s and the Arts and Crafts movement that so inspired its founder.

Rectangular planked top with a moulded edge, later inset with a brass metre rule, and with pegged bracket supports. Raised on substantial tapered and chamfered supports with pierced decorative panels in a geometric tear-shaped design and linked by a spirally fluted stretcher with incised ends. Stamp marked 6962 and liberty paper label written 6 west. This table is 1 of just 4 in this size, finish and style released in March 2011 by Liberty’s, who have retained a core collection themselves. (40 items in total released - tables, chests, cabinets). Provenance: Liberty & Co.

Just cleaned and waxed, the table is as it was acquired from Liberty’s, perfectly sound and ready to use, but with some marks from its 87 years of use, as i believe any attempt to over restore it will detract from both its historical and monetary value.

Size: 152.5(l) x 75.5(w) x 76(h) cm.

 

The table is part of a small unique collection of furniture made specifically in the tudor style, to compliment the design of Liberty’s magnificent tudor building completed in 1924. The building (shown above) was constructed to demonstrate craftsmanship of the highest quality and attention to detail, a reflection of the Arts and Crafts values of ‘truth to material’, a philosophy that played such an important role in the foundation of the company and the products it sold. The 20’s was also the highpoint of the tudor revival in the UK. The furniture was designed by architects Edwin T and Edwin S Hall and made in Liberty’s own workshops in Highgate, for the rooms and galleries within the store to display the textiles, clothes and luxury goods Liberty’s was so famous for. The range included a number of tables, chests and display cabinets, all in the 16th C style with pegged construction and decorative details complimenting the wood finishes and decorative design details, in the building itself.
