29 x 35 x 19 1/2 in. Provenance: Sigrist House, Nassau. Note: This table sat to the right of the fireplace in the library at Sigrist House (see illustration provided to us by Princess Guirey's family). Probably provided by Mallet Antiques, London. In the early 18th Century, British furniture makers references the works of top French designers in form, shape, and ornament. James Moore the Elder (c. 1670-1726) created walnut and mahogany furniture for King George I, becoming most famous for his Louis XIV-inspired, cut gesso pieces made between 1715 and 1725. Moore and his contemporaries looked to designs by Jean Bérain and Daniel Marot to create furniture dominated by scrolling foliage and symmetrical strapwork. In 1728, the inventory and stock or Moore's company were sold auction. Moore's legacy was sustained by his son, James Moore the Younger (d. 1734), as well as by Benjamin Goodison (1700-1767), who was trained by Moore and who succeeded him as the royal cabinetmaker. Other lesser known and anonymous cabinetmakers continued to decorate their works with cut-gesso through the 18th Century. Tabled by an in the manner of James Moore appear in the royal collections at Kensington Palace and Windsor Castle, as well as in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Victoria & Albert Museum. A similar table sold at Christie's on November 20th, 2008 (lot 630); another similar table sold at Christie's on December 9th, 2010 (lot 33).,
