Regency Mahogany Hall Bench
c. 1810 to 1820 England
Offered by Thomas Coulborn & Sons
Charles Heathcote Tatham (1772-1842): Charles Heathcote Tatham’s design work was inspired by classical Roman architecture. Tatham was encouraged by his employer and mentor, Henry Holland (1745-1806) to study and collect antique fragments and sculpture in Italy. Tatham he arrived in Rome in July 1794, and stayed there for two years, gathering material – drawing, sketching and buying a large number of antique fragments for Henry Holland, who was architect to the Prince of Wales. He used these drawings to inspire his design work and produced his ‘Etchings, Representing the Best Examples of Ancient Ornamental Architecture; Drawn from the Originals in Rome and other parts of Italy, during the years 1794, 1795 and 1796, 1799’, pl. 77. The design of this hall bench is based on a marble seat in an unspecified location in Rome, illustrated by Charles Heathcote Tatham, in his ‘Etchings Representing the Best Examples of Ancient Ornamental Architecture’, published in 1799, plate XIII. Tatham had visited Italy and made drawings of excavated ‘ancient’ furniture. His book provided British designers with ideas for furniture in the Greek Revival style. A stool in the V&A’s collection, designed by Charles Heathcote Tatham and made using beechwood, painted to imitate marble, follows this design.
