An interesting small pedestal table, of the Regancy period, in figured mahogany with geometric ebonised inlays and ormolu mounts.

 

England, circa 1815.

 

Why we love it

 

We love its architectural quality and austere, geometric design, inspired by Classical Antiquity. A number of distinctive stylistic features link it to the oeuvre of George Bullock, possibly the coolest Brititsh designer of the Regency period, whose extraordinary understanding and use of classical design vocabulary make his creations timeless and looking as modern now as they were back in the days.
