This outstanding Regency period tilt-top table is attributed to famed English cabinetmaker George Bullock, often considered the most influential artist of his craft during the early 19th century. The superb grain of the Cuban mahogany is easily visible in the handsome tabletop, which is further distinguished by fine brass inlay and sculpted gilt bronze trim. A plinth base with lion's-paw feet supports this refined table, and brass hardware beneath the top allows it to tilt to display its handsome surface. The masterful caliber, refined inlay work and superior form are characteristic of Bullock's genius. Though he experienced a relatively short career, this craftsman is known for producing only the highest quality furniture, and this remarkable table exemplifies the idiosyncrasies of his entire oeuvre.

Circa 1815

56" square x 29 1/4" high

George Bullock began his career as a modeler and sculpture artist in Liverpool before moving to London in 1812. It is in London where Bullock established his furniture workshop. It is unclear what prompted his move into furniture design, however, it seems to have been a natural transition considering his prowess for line and form. The superior quality of his work soon made him very successful. He was highly sought after for special commissions, the most prestigious of which was supplying furniture for the exiled Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte on St. Helena. Bullock's career was cut short when he died suddenly in 1818. Today, this talented craftsman is considered a master among early 19th-century cabinetmakers.
