We have an unrivalled collection of English and Continental antique furniture, which
includes walnut furniture such as Queen Anne bachelors chests, kneehole desks and
sets of Georgian chairs with fine needlework coverings from as early as 1700. Later
George II and George III chests of drawers, case furniture, side tables and occasional
tables crafted of the finest mahogany and exotic woods, are exhibited with Regency
furniture and Victorian furniture. The history of design and adoption of external
influences such as chinoiserie, the rococo, and neo-classicism, are traced throughout
the Mallett collections and balanced with the continental furniture collection.
Many of the important and revered English furniture makers and furniture designers
of the day are also represented. Important and very rare pieces designed by Thomas
Chippendale, John Linnell, John Mclean, Robert Adam, Vile & Cobb, and William Kent,
offer some of the most beautifully proportioned English furniture with the finest
quality decorations, of inlaid woods, carved mahogany or contrasting woods and grains.
The adoption by English furniture makers of new exotic woods is no more prominently
shown than during the late 18th century and the 19th century. Thomas Sheraton in
particular used these woods such as satinwood, rosewood, harewood and burr woods
to create highly refined neo classical designs which were much lighter in concept
than the previous designs of Georgian periods. The 19th century saw these ideas
and designs abstracted further, Jackson & Graham and Collinson & Lock, created some
of the most elegant 19th century pieces, with exceptional marquetry and play of
colours and woods.
Antique giltwood furniture is also represented, some of the most important pieces
were decorated with gold leaf, which was burnished and matted to emphasise form
and beauty. We have several important 18th century giltwood side tables and consoles,
accompanied by an outstanding collection of giltwood mirrors, many with original
antique mirror plates. The provenance of many of our pieces is also exceptional,
we have pieces from Kedleston Hall, Tabley Hall, Hackwood Park and Harewood House
and several pieces are related to furnishings represented in the Royal Collections.
