Named after the Prince Regent, Prince of Wales, (Regent: 1811-1820; King George IV: 1820-1830) the phrase "Regency Period" generally refers to English furniture produced from 1790-1840. The Prince Regent took a great interest in fashion and design and in a sense became the ruler of taste and artistic perception. Spanning nearly 50 years, the Regency period was one of the most creative, inventive and expensive periods of English furniture design. Because only the finest materials were used in the production of furniture from the early 19th century, it is often considered one of the most expensive periods of English furniture. Pieces such as this sideboard were inspired by the extraordinary craftsmanship of English furniture makers like Thomas Chippendale and Thomas Sheraton, as well as French ébénistes from the Louis XVI and Napoleonic eras. Accessorizing elements taken from a variety of influences including Greek, Roman and Egyptian motifs, were brought to the forefront of fashion and taste due to highly publicized excavations. Wealthy patrons in England, basking in their successes from the Industrial Revolution, delighted in following the Prince's taste for Neoclassical design commissioning tables and fine furnishings that continue to stand as timeless masterpieces today.
