Description

Very interesting mid 19th century Gothic Italian double strechered carved oak table with carved Latin inscription bearing the name JOHANNES GIBSON which may refer to the famous JOHN GIBSON RA who after leaving Wales lived and worked the rest of his life in Rome . Gibson was trained as a cabinet maker and wood carver at Southwell and Wilson before studying under Antonio Canova and became the top sculptor of his day carving statues that stand in the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey. There is the possibility that this table may have been made by Gibson for use in his studio. This is of course supposition and cannot be certified.Further research may prove fruitful. The table was brought from Switzerland
