This fine Regency rosewood cardtable is of the highest quality with the use of rio rosewood veneers to the top crossbanded with coromandel and inlaid with brass stringing with re-entrant corners. The brass inlays to the frieze are typical of George Oakley?s workshops. The brass stringing to the outswept legs and base are elegant touches terminating with the original castors and feet.

George Oakley was among the foremost cabinet-makers of his day, with premises in Bond Street, London, and the city. He had a wide and distinguished circle of patrons, including the Prince Regent, for whom he worked on Carlton House. During a career spanning over half a century he supplied furniture for the Mansion House and the Bank of England, as well as private clients such as the banker Thomas Baring, Edward, Lord Lascelles, for whom he worked at Harewood House, Hanover Square, London, and many, many more including Sir Henry and Sir John Sutton Nelthorpe, the 7th and 8th Barons of Scawby Hall.
