Butchoff, one of London’s most well known Antiques dealers located on Kensington Church Street, is presenting a selection of outstanding pieces of Decorative European furniture, that could grace a Royal Palace or a famous museum, such as the Wallace Collection. Shown here is an outstanding Morel and Seddon table made for Windsor castle. Made in unusual Amboyna, an exotic hardwood sourced from an island in the South East pacific. With ormolu gilt bronze mounts, rising from ormolu scroll feet cast with lotus ornaments. There is an excellent Royal provenance for this rare table. The table was ordered in King George 1V’s reign (1762-1830) King George 1V, as the flamboyant Prince of Wales, would probably have known Nicolas Morel who made furniture for the Prince’s glittering & gilded Brighton Pavilion. Morel joined forces with George Seddon (London Cabinet Maker) in 1827. The famous Windsor Commission, a large collection of bespoke furniture, of which this rare table was a part, was ordered in 1828. Archive Documents show that the Windsor Commission was worth a phenomenal £200.000.
