Luxury Design, Past & Present
A Regency amboyna and gilt library table attributed to Seddon and Morel, with a rectangular top set upon solid end supports with a turned, reeded and gilded stretcher and gilded bun feet, decorated throughout with rich amboyna veneers and gilt gesso edging to the top and inside the panels of the end supports. English, circa 1815.
This is similar to a group of tables supplied to Windsor Castle by Morel and Seddon, some of which are now in Buckingham Palace. When Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth gave her Christmas Address in 2018, she was seated at a more ornate version with a rich gilt scrolls down the front of the supports.
