This was made for the Dining-Room and invoiced in 1817 as '1 Rich Oak Sliding Fire Screen richly inlaid with Holly with three Sliding panels in Crimson cloth £16'.
The firescreen has a Grecian-arched cresting richly inlaid with flowered foliage in the Louis Quatorze 'Roman' fashion. Some of the Dining-Room furnishings had been completed by July 1816, when Bullock informed Mr Boulton that, 'the effect of the white and oak is very delicate'. The pattern for the hop-inlaid foliage survives in the 'Bullock' tracings in Birmingham City Art Gallery, and it also relates to Bullock's designs for silver plate (C. Wainwright et al., George Bullock, Cabinet-Maker, London, 1988, p. 38, fig. 11).
