The faded veneers to the table top are wonderful and it is so rare to see this colour on rosewood these days. The rosewood crossbanding with the contra-partie brass inlay depicts flowers. The tilt top table rests on a rosewood pedestal with carved acanthus leaf on a brass inlaid triform base resting on concealed castors. N.B. George Simson cabinet maker was in business from 1787 to 1840, trading from 19 St Paul's Church Yard London. Simson made highly fashionable furniture inspired by pattern book designs and is known to have subscribed to Sheraton's drawing-book. A lot of his work was labelled (GEORGE SIMSON UPHOLDER CABINET MAKER & UNDERTAKER LONDON) and his work often reflected up market Regency pieces such as the item shown here.
