The strong affinities in the design and the high quality of workmanship suggest that this piece almost certainly came from the workshop of Morel and Seddon.


Morel and Seddon

Nicholas Morel had worked for The Prince of Wales later George IV, at Carlton House and the Royal Pavilion at Brighton. He was then later commissioned to design and furnish the newly built apartments at Windsor castle by the now King, George IV.

In order to fulfil this important commission, Morel entered in to a partnership with George Seddon III, whose family had a large and well established workshop in Aldersgate Street in the City of London.

With the Crown their main client, the early part of the 19th Century proved successful for the partnership, and a number of superb pieces were created, with amboyna being their specialised choice of timber
