Lot 64| A George III mahogany drum library table, it bears six conventional drawers interspersed with six opening by a revolving action. Mahogany was widely used in the 18th century for cabinets and tables as it famously possesses a straight, fine and even grain and good workability. Over time its reddish-brown colour darkens and when polished displays a reddish sheen as seen in this example up for sale on 21 November in Fine Furniture, Carpets, Ceramics and Works of Art. The sale goes on view from Friday | 12-4pm#dreweatts #donningtonpriory #finefurniture #interiors #interiordesign #antiquefurniture #mahogany #fineauction #countryliving #countrylife

This Venetian painted and parcel gilt serpentine commode dates from 1760 and will appear in our Fine Furniture, Carpets, Ceramics and Works of Art auction on the 21 November. It is decorated with flowers and birds in cartouche shaped reserves within a crimson lacquer field. It sits on cabriole shaped legs terminating in stylised hoof feet. The vogue for Italian painted furniture was at its height at this time, and the popularity of Venice as a key location on the Grand Tour only increased its fashionability. #dreweatts #donningtonpriory #finefurniture #antique #interiors #interiordesign #countryliving #italianfurniture #fineauction #italianantiquefurniture #venetianantiques

The period 1760-1820 is regarded as the golden age of classical English furniture design. Although at the time Royal patronage was still very important increasing numbers of the aristocracy and fashionable classes were building mansions and townhouses which required furnishing. The greatest and best known names in furniture design all flourished at this time. In our upcoming Fine Furniture, Carpets and Works of Art, we have this George III mahogany armchair, of Gainsborough type with typical rectangular back above polished mahogany open arms, the rectangular seat above voluted cabriole legs. #dreweatts #donningtonpriory #finefurniture #interiors #interiordesign #countryhouse #countryhome #gainsborough #englishfurniture #antique #fineauction
