Description
A delightful and rare 19th Century William IV period Septarian Nodule / turtle stone English marble circular specimen table. English circa 1835. The circular top having a rosewood veneered border inset with a large turtle stone marble specimen held by four very slender supports, finishing on a concave sided platform base raised on turned bun feet retaining the original recessed squat castors. Offered in excellent condition with a fine original colour and almost of a contemporary design, this wonderful and exceedingly rare table will make a statement in any collection. Known as turtlestone for its characteristic pattern of radiating cracks is also referred to as Septarian Nodule or volcanic rock. Septarian nodules are a remarkable geological formation created during the Jurassic period 150 million years ago when pores in a mass of sedimentary rock often filled with fossils are filled with mineral deposits which harden in a spherical form. The cracks (septaria) formed are something of a mystery but they produce a beautifully striking and unusual effect. Found in the English Oxfordshire clay during a mining process in the early 19th Century, this wonderful discovery found the spheres could be cut and polished to be incorporated into items of furniture and ornaments. The Septarian nodules found in England were only ever small, so it is very rare to have a large circumference top as the one we have in stock presently.
