A delightful and very fine quality English regency period
amboyna wood centre table having superbly figured tilting
circular top with inlaid anthemion decoration to border raised
on triangulated central support terminating on elegant triform
base with original bronze paw castors

(This stunning table is a wonderful example of the skills and workmanship
on show in London around the Regency period. Although we cannot
attribute it to a particular maker, or workshop, there was certainly only
4 or 5 cabinet making workshops of the time capable of producing
such excellent work and of course of affording the raw materials.
Amboyna is indigenous mainly to south East Asia and the Pacific
islands and not regularly found in English furniture due to the exorbitant
costs of sourcing it around the time. It is also however a beautifully
decorative wood which nearly always retains a rich colour and is
high figuring. This table stands with incredible elegance and grace
and would no doubt be a highlight in any room, of any home).
