Chimney piece console, Mount Pleasant - 1764.

Flower heads on detachable bed knees.
As Luke Beckerdite has detailed in his Philadelphia Carving Shops Part II - Bernard & Jugiez, “The
flower in the lower left corner has a cylindrical centre with a gouged out impression in the top of it 
and veining like that on the flower on the chimney piece consoles at Cliveden”18 This same treatment
is seen on all of the flower heads carved on the bed.
 
In 1769 Bernard & Jugiez adorned the house of Samuel Powel with the same carvings.
