Provenance

This side cabinet follows the fashion of ‘Buhl’ inlay in the French manner, illustrating the influence of the Louis XIV revival in later Regency furniture, particularly after the restoration of the French monarchy in 1814. The contrast between the originally much darker rosewood and the richness of the brass strapwork would have been enhanced in subdued lamplight. One of the most celebrated Louis XIV revival drum tables was supplied to the Golden Drawing Room at Carlton House for the Prince Regent, and was illustrated in W. H. Pyne’s Royal Residences, published in 1819.
