Lot Essay

This table corresponds to a pair in the Flaxman Room of Thomas Hope's mansion/museum in Duchess Street (see: T. Hope, Household Furniture and Interior Decoration, 1807, pl. VII). The centrepiece of the room was Flaxman's marble group of Aurora and Cephalus and the text comments that 'the whole surrounding decoration has been rendered, in some degree, analogous to these personages, and to the face of nature at the moment when the first of the two, the goddess of the morn, is supposed to announce approaching day'.
