Antique Chinoiserie Black Lacquer Cabinet / Chiffonier

Very fine example of a Regency Chinoiserie Lacquered cabinet dating from 1820. This sort of painted furniture was extremely popular among the well-travelled wealthy English of the period. Most of them would not necessarily have made it to China, but they would have read and learnt about it. The Prince Regent himself was very interested in painted lacquer furniture themed from around the world, the most important example of which is his Brighton Pavillion. The Pavillion is a Chinese/Indian monstrosity which demonstrates high Regency frippery in its extreme.
This cabinet is a much more restrained than the Pavillion in Brighton. It has good proportions, proper tennon construction, thin panels and very fine decoration. Those who remember the Kings Road in the 80s will recognise this as a real Lord Rendlesham piece.

English circa 1820 £1,850

The firm exhibited to great success at the Paris exhibition of 1878. They are a very famous and influential company of designers and manufactures and their pieces are interesting to study and collect as there is so much information about them available.
