Fine Regency Brass Mounted Sofa Table
A fine quality Regency period sofa table, in the manner of William Trotter of Edinburgh.
English or Scottish, c. 1820
The piece's elegant design and decorative features echo the style of William Trotter of Edinburgh, who rivalled the London furniture makers of the day and supplied very fine pieces to prominent Scottish households. Exquisite craftsmanship, smart choice of veneers and the use of the finely engraved brass mounts and castor cappings suggest that the piece was made by a highly skilled cabinetmaker, for a wealthy person with sophisticated taste.
