Description

A very well drawn, highly decorative and sophisticated pair of Regency style window seats.
Decorated in grey by hand with anthemion and lines on an ebonised ground.
Now upholstered in genuine zebra hide, and close nailed.
A faithful version of a fine period pair (circa 1810) which we sold from our stock in the 1960’s.

H: 61 cm.

W: 113 cm.

D: 45 cm.

The design of this Grecian style window seat was popularized by the firm of Morgan & Saunders, Trafalgar House, Catherine street, Strand, London (Ackermann’s ‘Regency Furniture & Interiors’. Text by Pauline Agius, Introduction by Stephen Jones, London, 1984, p. 39, plate 1). A closely related window seat by the firm is illustrated in R. Ackermann, The Repository of Arts, London, 1809.

NB. A pair of small size window seats in mahogany in the manner of Morgan and Saunders sold at Sothebys London on 4th June 2008 @ £12,500.

Ref. BHA 991
