An early 18th century George I carved gilt gesso concertina action games table, the folding top with rounded corners and incised decoration of stylised acanthus, intertwined oak leaves, acorns and shells on a punched ground, opening to reveal a baize lined playing surface with guinea wells and foliate carved candle stands, the broad frieze carved with stylised acanthus motifs, raised on straight tapering legs with shells at the knees and terminating in pad feet.
A very similar concertina action gilt gesso games table was formerly in the collections of the Earls of Carnarvon, Highclere Castle, now in the Metropolitan Museum.
The rarity and quality of both the Metropolitan’s and Mallett’s table can be related to two London workshops; that of the Royal cabinet-maker James Moore and also the Huguenot family of carvers, the Pelletiers, who supplied the royal households of William III and Queen Anne.
