The stem with fine column and vase shaped turnings carved with ring and linear decoration. Standing on a tripod base with three sweeping cabriole legs. Exceptional colour, figuring and patina.

The flame figuring revealed by slicing through the face of the branch at the point where it joins another element of the tree. It is an expensive cutting technique given the small number of major branches on any trunk. It is a hallmark of quality in furniture construction and is highly-prized for its inherent beauty.
