Review Entries for Day Monday, April 14, 2014

The Regency era ran from 1812 to 1820, although the term often refers to a more extended period from 1795 to the end of WIlliam IV's reign.

Regency furniture is generally elaborately decorated with Classical and Egyptian influences.

In the furniture auction ( to be held on 30th April 2014) of the three day Spring 2014 Quarterly Fine Art Sale, there is a good selection of Regency furniture being offered for auction.

For example, there is a Regency rosewood and carved giltwood library table (FS22/920).

A Regency carved rosewood scroll end settee is also being offered (FS22/915).
