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

18th century walnut cabinet
Early 18th century walnut cabinet / bookcase. This bookcase is made of burr walnut quarter cut veneer with feather banding around the drawers and pre-cockbeading double molded edge around the drawers and glazing. This is a very tactile piece of furniture that everyone likes to touch. It was made before the age of mahogany and is a charming honey colour. It is unusually small and its warm colour means that it should compliment any room.

It is ebonised with solid ebony sections and has panels made of pure burr elm, gilt stringing and a mirror. English circa 1875 £6,800
Marsh Jones and Cribb were based in Leeds and later also London. They were associated with such important designers as Charles Bevan, Bruce Talbert and William Lethaby.

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.
