Lot 0038 Details

Description
A Regency oak and ebonised marquetry sofa table , circa 1815, in the manner of George Bullock, the rectangular top incorporating a pair of hinged leaves and crossbanded throughout with an ebonised marquetry leaf and berry decorated border, the frieze incorporating a pair of drawers and two false opposing drawers, each end supported with dual turned columns, joined by a pole stretcher, on line inlaid downswept legs, lappet cast caps and castors, 71.5cm high, 102cm wide (unextended), 74cm deep
Provenance: By family descent to the current owner
This sofa table was inherited from the current owners maternal grandmother, who in turn came to own it from her marriage to Conyngham Charles Denison, who was 7th Baron Londesborough (1885-1967)
For a tripod table decorated with identical foliate decoration but in brass marquetry and in circular form, see H. Blairman & Sons and Cameron Books, (Introduction by Clive Wainwright) George Bullock Cabinet Maker, John Murray Publishers 1988, p.67. The tripod table was itemised in the Bullock account for the Duke of Atholl at Blair Castle, Perthshire under the date 3rd November 1814. Furthermore the same decoration but in a straight line (as with the current sofa table) can be found as page 137 of the Wilkinson Tracings (City Museums and Art Gallery, Birmingham)
The design for the marquetry is among a collection of tracings that were originally bound in a scrapbook inscribed t racings by Thomas Wilkinson from the designs of the late Mr George Bullock 1820, which is now at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.Wilkinson may have worked for Bullock, which would explain his access to the original designs.
