moreThis outstanding English amboyna library table is an important example of the early Regency style design. The Regency era is considered by many to be the Zenith of English cabinet making, and this table is certainly exemplary of early 19th-century elegance. Evoking the stately forms of ancient Greek and Roman architecture, the table's perfectly proportioned form and graceful lines are enhanced by the superb grain of the Amboyna. The handsome surface leads down to the facade, which features two drawers outlined by delicate ebony edging. A gem of functional beauty, the table rests upon elegantly curving cabriole legs that terminate in wheels for ease of movement.
While King George IV (1820-1830) only reigned as king for 10 years, he served as the Prince Regent from 1811 until his father’s death in 1820. Known for his extravagant lifestyle, he took an interest in fashion and design, becoming a ruler of taste and artistic influence. Thus, the Regency period was one of the most creative, inventive and expensive periods of English design, fueled and paid for by the rapid growth of industrialization in Western Europe. Wealthy patrons in England delighted in following the Prince’s eclectic taste for neoclassical design, commissioning tables and Fine furnishings such as this. Marked by its masterful design and craftsmanship, this table is a superb example of the early Regency style.
