A rare, early-18th century, oval, gateleg table painted with maritime scenes
The top in three sections, painted with vignettes of men fishing from skiffs within Dutch landscapes and a foliate border. The frieze fitted with a single, long drawer. The base with an elegant, split-leg, gate mechanism on high toes. Some decoration refreshed. Hindelopen, Holland.
Hindelopen (Northern Dutch folk art) Hindelopen - Hylpen is one of the 11 Frisian cities, since 1984 part of the municipality of Nijefurd. It is in southwest Friesland, a little port on the IJsselmeer with less than 1.000 inhabitants. Several Hindeloopers were captains in the East-Indian trade and brought home goods that inspired special decoration styles for both wood and pottery, creating an art and industry still in existence.
