The gilt bronze mounted kingwood, amaranth and marquetry table en chiffoniere has an inset marble top above a frieze drawer inlaid with quill, inkpot and books, over a row of leather bookends, with a useful frieze drawer and another on the side.
The underside bears a label for the cabinet maker and builder G. Trollope & Sons and this would have been made in their Paris workshops.
Trollope & Sons, of Belgravia London, were one of the largest and best-known makers of furniture in London during the reign of Queen Victoria. This cabinet comes from an era of great acclaim for Trollope and Sons which saw them exhibit in both London and Paris. Additionally to their cabinet making skills, Trollope and Sons also built Claridge’s Hotel and many of the Caddogan Estate properties too.
A very similar stamped table by Francois Linke sold recently at Christie's, Opulence, New York, 13 April 2017, lot 117.
Works by G. Trollope are on display in the Victoria & Albert Museum.
In excellent condition having been beautifully cleaned and polished in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.
