A fine Regency period rosewood veneered and amboyna inlaid centre table; the tilt-top crossbanded in amboyna with a geometrically inlaid frieze above a gilded ball stem raised on an elegant four splay base, the legs inlaid with amboyna and terminating in lion paw casters.
This antique Regency centre table retains an excellent colour and patina. This antique table forms part of a suite of Regency furniture along with a pair of antique card tables and a sofa table which is a very rare survival; suites of furniture have normally been broken up due to the vagaries of inheritance, tax and failure to remain their original home.
The use of the most exclusive woods for the antique tables' veneers show that they would have been commissioned for a highly fashionable Regency residence. Arrayed together the suite has a fantastic impact similar to the effect contemporary designers such as George Bullock sought to achieve.
