Object Description

The handsome Regency period rich mahogany serving table having a single drawer to the frieze with gadrooned ornament, on cabriole front legs, headed with carved acanthus leaves and terminating in lions paw feet to turned tapering rears, the whole surviving in original condition from the first quarter of nineteenth century England.

Object History

Unknown.

Object Literature

The influences on Regency design and taste were legion; from Sheraton’s neoclassicism, Henry Holland’s Anglo-French taste, the Greek revival of Thomas Hope, and the Chinoiserie favoured by the Prince Regent, to an interest in the Gothic, Old English and rustic. The Regency attitude to interior decoration often involved treating each room as a unit with individual furnishings and wall decorations in harmony of theme or colour scheme.

An imposing table, yet remaining elegant, of fine quality, that could equally work as well as a console table.

Object Condition

The condition of the table is good overall with a rich patina to the mahogany. The top shows some markings as per the photographs. We have given the piece an oil and wax treatment to bring out the patina. The drawer runs smoothly and would have held the cutlery for the meal.
