An exceptional, well-proportioned George II mahogany card table, the shaped top of very fine colour and patina, opening with a concertina action to reveal a baize-lined interior with candle stands and guinea wells, the hinges stamped H. Tibats, the frieze raised on boldly carved front cabriole legs headed with lion's heads and carved acanthus brackets, with further leaf carving running down to terminate in carved hairy lion's paw feet.
The stamp of H.Tibats on the hinges is thought to relate to Hugh Tibbats or Tibats (both spellings are recorded) 'hinge and sash fastening maker' of Bell Street, Wolverhampton, listed in 'The Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Walsall, Dudley, Bilston and Willenhall Directory, 1781'. The 'Tibats' stamped hinge has been recorded on a number of high quality concertina action tables. (see P. Thornton, A Signed Hinge, in Furniture History, 1966, pp. 44-45).
