Matched Pair of Meeks Parlor Tables

by John Werry on October 22, 2007

For the collector for whom one J & JW Meeks table wouldn’t be enough, here’s a chance to purchase a matched pair of marble-topped Rococo parlor tables by Meeks.

You have plenty of time to save up for them as they will be going up for auction January 19th in Stevens Auction Company’s “Spectacular Antiques Auction“.

There will be several exceptional Belter pieces in this sale and I’m sure they will be adding more lots as the day approches.

For those who aren’t as well-versed in identifying Meeks pieces, I’ve put together this odd combination of photos to point out one of the key identifying characteristics. Every time I see a Meeks piece and spot the curved elements such as those in this table’s stretcher I think of the Alien character from the movie with Sigourney Weaver. I bet you won’t look at another Meeks piece the same way again.
