Lot Essay

The cabinet-maker George Oakley (d. 1840) was among the specialist manufacturers of Grecian-black calamander furniture, ormolu-enriched in the French fashion and with 'buhl' inlay. He ran one of the more successful Regency London firms with various associates producing stylish furniture for, among others, the Prince of Wales, later George IV (see The Dictionary of English Furniture-Makers, Leeds, 1986, pp. 654-660).
