Messrs Tatham & Bailey were responsible for supplying furniture to the Brighton Pavilion and the Regent’s household generally. Founded in the 1780s, they had their premises at 14 Mount Street. The partnership was originally between George Elward and William Marsh, with Edward Bailey joining the firm in 1793 and Thomas Tatham (brother of the designer C.H. Tatham) in 1798. From 1803 to 1811 the firm styled itself ‘Marsh and Tatham’ or ‘Tatham and Bailey’. They were joined by Richard Saunders in 1811, and thereafter were generally known as ‘Tatham, Bailey and Saunders’. The distinctive gilt bronze cappings appear on a Regency rosewood and brass inlaid library table formerly with the London dealers Trevor, and illustrated in F.Lewis Hinckley, “Sheraton, Hepplewhite and Regency Furniture”. Other examples of furniture with very similar stylistic applications can also be found in the Royal Collections.
