A GEORGE IV ORMOLU MOUNTED AMBOYNA CENTRE TABLE
c. 1830 England
Offered by Godson & Coles
This spectacular table’s attribution to the Royal cabinet-makers Morel & Seddon is based on close similarities to furniture supplied by them to George IV as part of the Windsor Castle commission. Most notably, the inlaid pattern to the top conforms precisely to that on two amboyna centre tables supplied for the magnificent Crimson Drawing Room at Windsor (see H. Roberts, ‘For the King’s Pleasure: The Furnishing and Decoration of George IV’s Apartments at Windsor Castle,’ 2001, pp. 82 & 92, figs. 83–4). In the 1820s, George IV set about the enormous task of reconstructing and refurbishing Windsor Castle. A consummate builder, the King engaged architect Sir Jeffrey Wyattville and cabinetmakers Morel & Seddon for the task. The firm was directly responsible to the King, who took an active interest in the project. A series of seventy drawings showing the proposed schemes of decoration in many cases bear the King’s annotations and approval (‘appvd’).
