Regency Rosewood Inlaid Cabinet with Egyptian Headed Pilasters
c. 1815 England
Offered by Freshfords Fine Antiques
The rosewood veneered top has unusual convex corners with boxwood string and rosewood cross banding to the frieze. The two full length drawers with later replaced handles are flanked by stunning ormolu mounted Egyptian heads. The pilasters have Greek style stringing inlay and lion-paw feet. The silk pleated cupboard doors stand above the original gilded gadrooned beading that sits on a plinth base.
The Egyptian headed pilasters with lion-paw feet reflect the 'antique' influence of Thomas Hope. The convex corners were a popular feature of Gillow furniture around 1812 (J.Hardy and N.Goodison, 'Gillows at Tatton Park', Furniture History, 1970, fig.19b).
