Review Entries for Day Tuesday, June 25, 2013

George Bullock was a cabinet maker who came to prominence in the late 18th and early 19th century. Born in Birmingham, Bullock settled in Liverpool and was in partnership with a mirror manufacturer, selling their wares from premises known as ‘The Grecian Rooms’. This gives a clue to Bullock’s style which is very much associated with the Classical forms associated with the Regency period.

 

Bullock owned marble quarries and this material was much used in his furnishings, not least in fireplaces.

 

In 1813 he moved to London and became well-established as a furniture designer with several important commissions.

 A pair of Regency pollard oak rectangular card tables in the manner of George Bullock (SF18/1005)

 

Although not directly attributed to him, this pair of card tables (SF18/1005) very much reflect the neo-classical style associated with Bullock. They have rectangular baize lined hinged tops with reel turned edges and moulded panel friezes and are raised on taperinmg moulded panel columns and bevelled stepped rectangular plinths. Measuring 3ft 2in wide (97cm), this super pair of card tables carry a pre-sale estimate of £6,000-£8,000 and are being offered as part of the Nye Furniture Collection, the first part of which is to be sold in a special fine sale on Friday, 5th July 2013 at Dowell Street, Honiton, Devon
