Kilian Brothers Inlaid, Gilt-Incised, Ebonized Parlor Table
There’s something about Kilian Brothers pieces that make them some of my favorites. Their heavy mix of ebonization, polychrome paint (in some cases), heavy use of gilt-incising and Neo-Grec styling is very appealing to me and resulted in me adding one of their pieces to my collection a while back.
Thanks to a Rare Vic reader, John B., I was notified of this attributed Kilian Brothers table currently up for sale on Ebay. I’ve also learned a new word from within the listing used to describe this piece of furniture – architectonic. I would agree based on it’s definition that a lot of Kilian pieces are “architectonic”. First time I’ve heard that one.
