Regency Bird's-Eye Maple Wood Games Table (England, circa 1830)

£7,800.00
A stunning regency period bird's-eye maple wood games
Table, in the manner of morel & seddon, with chess board
And foliate border inlaid to rectangular top over one cedar
Lined drawer with conforming foliate inlaid decoration flanked
By carved scrolls and raised on tablet end supports with
Acanthus carved terminals over elegant carved scrolling feet
With original recessed castors.

(This tables magnificent quality which is evidenced by the spectacular
inlay decoration which takes various forms, the stunningly crisp carved
decoration in various different areas and of course the cedar wood
lined drawer. Every last piece has been made with consumate skill and
no expense spared and it really is a quite beautiful and elegant table
which has very much stood the test of time and remains in good, useful
condition as both a games table and occasional lamp type table.

Although it cannot be definitively proved that it was made by "Morel &
Seddon" there are many features indeed which tie up with previously
documented work they carried out and it is highly likely to have
originated from their workshops.

The partnership of Nicholas Morel, who formerly worked for the Prince of Wales,
later George IVth, on his residences at both Carlton House and Brighton Pavilion,
and George Seddon, of the large and established cabinet makers Seddon and
Sons, Aldersgate Street, began in 1827, when Morel was awarded by George
IVth the huge task of refurbishing Windsor Castles apartments. He chose to
partner with Seddon whose expertise was coupled with a large workforce
and was noted as one of the largest cabinet makers in London in the 18th
Century with a capacity to process large orders. Windsor Castle commission
was worth almost £200,000 to the company and many of the pieces made can
be found documented in Hugh Roberts book, ‘For the King’s Pleasure’,
published by Royal Collection Enterprises.).
