Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
This piece marks the transition from eighteenth century to early nineteenth century furniture design. The finely turned corners closely resemble the detailing favoured by the cabinet maker George Seddon (1727-1801) and his contemporaries. The overall simplicity of the piece shows a decided departure from ornament in favour of sparse decoration and purity of form. In this respect, furniture design at the turn of the nineteenth century reflected the architectural philosophy of the age.
The piece does not include the objects displayed inside bookcase in the accompanying images, which are present as an illustrative example of appropriate contents.
