The rounded rectangular top is crossbanded in rosewood with a shallow frieze veneered in amboyna and an applied rosewood moulding. Below the facetted stretcher is again contrasted in rosewood, with a reeded and ring-turned centre piece. The elegant trestle ends with crisply carved rosewood rosettes and parcel gilt foliate scrolls that have been lightly refreshed. The stepped plinth supports the original gilt brass paw feet that stand on concealed castors.
Morel & Seddon

George Seddon (1796–1857) formed a partnership with a cabinetmaker and upholsterer called Nicholas Morel and the firm was called Morel & Seddon. One of their contracts was to make furniture for Windsor Castle. In 1830 George’s brother Thomas III joined this partnership. After 1833 the name of the business reverted to Seddon & Sons. The firm finally closed in 1868.

Firm of cabinet-makers, formed in 1827 to provide the furnishings for George IV’s new rooms at Windsor
Nicholas Morel had been chosen as furniture maker in charge of re-furnishing Windsor Castle, but needed the help of a large established firm for this vast commission and went into partnership with George Seddon and his company
The company employed designers including the young A.W.N. Pugin
They worked almost exclusively for the crown, particularly at Windsor, but also at other royal residences
They continued to work for the royal family after George IV’s death, for William IV and Queen Victoria, although Morel’s name disappears from the accounts in 1831
