Rare and Important Chip Carved Hanging Console by Phillip Lloyd Powell
A Rare and Important Chip Carved Console in Walnut by Phillip Lloyd Powell. USA, 1970s.
A Rare and Important Chip Carved Console in Walnut by Phillip Lloyd Powell. USA, 1970s. A rare and impressive hand-chipped nine drawer console with original Pennsylvania slate top. Drawer front are hand carved around vintage cast iron nail heads. As always the contour of the hand-chipping relates to the movement of the grain and works around the natural density patterns of the wood. The solid walnut planking is cut, joined and carved to create raised strokes that criss-cross the front of the console face. The sides are finished and matched in chip-carving as well. An inch-thick slab of slate adorns the top pf the cabinet. The hand-chipping is a signature Powell technique that is rarely exhibited across such a large surface. The exposed nail heads are also a rare but signifigant feature. Two drawers on the lower left of the console contain organizational walnut dividers.
