A fine and unusual Regency rosewood centre table in the manner of William Trotter of Edinburgh. The rounded rectangular top wonderfully figured, with beaded edge over a rectangular frieze with concealed drawer and lower beaded edge all round. The table is supported by four sweeping, reeded end supports, terminating in tight scrolls terminating on a cross end platform which is linked by a shaped reeded stretcher. The table is supported on small swept scrolling, reeded legs and acanthus leaf carving terminating in unusual reeded castors. Features like the tight c-scroll on the supports, the acanthus carved knees, and the unusual castors are a characteristic of fine Regency furniture maker, William Trotter of Edinburgh.

William Trotter was born into a family of merchants in 1772, descended on the maternal side from the family of John Knox, he became a member of The Merchant Company in 1797 and by 1809 he was sole proprietor of the firm Young & Trotter. In 1819 he was elected master of The Merchant Company and from 1825-27 he was Lord Provost of Edinburgh. In 1814-15 he furnished the library and picture gallery which the architect Robert Reid had added to Paxton House for George Home. Trotter continued to trade from 9 Princes Street (the site on which the 'Balmoral Hotel' stands today) until his death in 1833. He was regarded as the perhaps the most eminent of all Scottish cabinet makers and rosewood was a timber which he worked regularly.
Excellent. Minor old restorations, cleaning and waxing.
