A very fine pair of George III mahogany and plum pudding mahogany concertina action card tables, each with square cut corners and recessed sides, the hinged tops opening to reveal a baize lined interior with counter recesses and candle stands, one hinge stamped ‘H.P. Tibats.’ English, circa 1780.
Provence: Jeremy Ltd., London
Footnote: Many fine pieces of 18th century furniture, particularly card tables, bear the stamp ‘H. TIBATS’ on their hinges. The stamp almost certainly refers to Hugh Tibbatts, ‘hinge and sash fastening maker‘ of Bell Street, Wolverhampton, listed relatively late in the 1781 Pearson & Rollason Directory for Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Walsall, Dudley, Bilston and Willenhall. A concertina-action card table, circa 1755-60, with quadrant hinges stamped ‘H. Tibats’ is in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum (W.65:1-1962).
