A superb and unique Regency pollard oak writing table attributable to renowned Edinburgh cabinetmaker William Trotter. The rounded rectangular top with central pollard oak panel cross-banded in oak, The frieze with a cock-beaded drawer compartmentalised for writing instruments and fitted with small brass knob handles. The top is supported by a column of quadruple, square section supports turning and sweeping outwards at the lower end with a triple feather scroll in the form of a wing with applied tightly ringed rosettes (a known Trotter feature) standing on a quad partite with turned and ringed barrel feet again with a tightly ringed rosette to each end. This table is highly unusual with superb original colour & patina and probably unique in its existence.
Excellent. The table has been cleaned and waxed, possible minor old restorations.
From a private residence in London.
Scottish, Regency, George IV, circa 1825
