A work of stunning artistry, this important Victorian mahogany tilt top table exhibits a remarkable inlaid design of exotic woods such as boxwood, satinwood, rosewood cherry and walnut, accented with luxurious ivory. Adorning the entire table from the octagonal top to the pedestal and octagonal base, the intricate design is comprised of a stunning array of flowers, including roses, tulips, daisies and lilies-of-the-valley. The central tableau, a bowl of fruit that has attracted a bird and several insects, showcases the artist's technical and compositional skill. Designed to be displayed against a wall when not in use, this table is expertly finished even on its underside, and combines superb craftsmanship with powerful design to create a truly innovative and original piece.

Victorian furniture revived many historical designs of the past, creating an eclectic and lush new decorative style. Carving was the most important method of ornamentation, and the use of veneers added a richness of color to the late classical styles. Painting, inlay and marquetry were used on elaborate pieces such as sideboards and parlor cabinets. Exquisitely decorated furniture like this table first appeared as a reaction to the severe designs of the Regency and William IV periods. Victorians came to prefer furniture that evoked more a sense of pleasure and enjoyment than discipline and duty.
