Regency Rosewood Étagère Trolley (England, circa 1830)

£3,850.00

A Fine Quality And Unusual Design Late Regency Period Rosewood Étagère, Or Trolley, Having Three Superbly Figured Tiers United By Elegant Finely Turned Spindle Uprights To Each End Raised On Reverse Tapering Turned Supports Terminating On Bulbous Turned Feet With Original Brass Castors.

The word Étagère is derived from the French word for a set of open freestanding shelves at and although in England during the late 18th and 19th centuries the term Whatnot was much more common, the two phrases are pretty much intermingled with each other these days, although the English term Whatnot can often now suggest an item of furniture which consists of tiered shelves but is much larger overall.

This particular example is of a design form which we have rarely seen previously and the design itself is rather ingenious in its simplicity we think. Due to clever proportions this piece of furniture can serve as a whatnot, etagère, bedside table, hall table, coffee table, freestanding open bookcase and a whole host of other particularly useful functions in our opinion.

The rosewood veneers are particularly well chosen with a high figuring to them and it also retains a lovely, untouched, rich colour and patina. The spindles at each end are a particularly decorative feature, adding a real touch of elegance to the piece overall.

Circa 1830.
