A Stunning Quality Regency Period Rosewood Breakfront Side Cabinet The Highly Figured Top Above Four Silk Panel Doors Concealing Drawers To Centre And Sliding Trays To Ends, Flanked By Elegant Ropetwist Turned Columns And Profusely Inlaid With Brass Throughout Standing On Original Plinth Base

This cabinet has almost certainly been produced by one of the best cabinet making firms of the time due to the high quality materials used in all parts of the construction including the concealed drawers & trays, which are faced with decorative rosewood veneers. It also bears a paper label to the underside of a drawer lining, stating who the cabinet was made for and where they lived. Unfortunately the label doesn’t state the maker but based on the overall quality & design, along with the particularly fine & distinctive brass inlay we suggest George Oakley.
‘’George Oakley’’ is regarded as one of the premier cabinet makers of his time and operated from premises in both Bond St and The City. He quickly established a successful firm & indeed attracted the Royal patronage of the Prince Of Wales in 1800 which was swiftly followed by the award of the Royal Warrant in 1802.
The brass inlaid Egyptian rayed suns which can be found in the corner of each door and the fine boulle type inlay was a particular speciality of Oakley’s and can be found adorning many pieces previously documented to him.
