These Regency-period dining pedestal cupboards are executed in the manner of the renowned English furniture designer, George Smith. Much more than meets the eye, these distinguished mahogany pedestals actually serve as a dish warmer and wine cellarette, respectively. The dish warming pedestal features a lead-lined interior with two slatted shelves and a cast iron grill in the base, while the other contains shelving and a drawer for storage of one's most prized libations. The stepped pedimented tops give way to reeded, hinged doors, while ebonized lion paw feet complete the design of these outstanding Neoclassical-inspired furnishings. Atop each pedestal is the rare inclusion of mahogany cutlery urns that were used to conveniently store knives and other utensils.

George Smith's furniture creations made him the most celebrated designer of the Regency period, so much so that he was named the official Cabinet and Furniture Maker to His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales. He made furniture in a wide, eclectic range of tastes, based generally on the neoclassical style. He produced several pattern books the first being A Collection of Designs for Household Furniture and Interior Decoration, which helped define the Regency style.

A similar design for dining pedestals can be found in George Smith's book, A Collection of Designs for Household Furniture and Interior Decoration, published in 1808, plate 92.
