Lot Essay

This interesting bookcase has many of the features characteristic of George Bullock's workshop, most notably the holly and oak marquetry, the brass mounts and the black staining to the drawer lining. A group of furniture with very similar marquetry was sold from Tew Park, Oxfordshire (Christie's house sale, 27-29 May 1987), which were commissioned by Matthew Robinson Boulton from Bullock and Morant.
