Regency Period Mahogany Canterbury
A well figured Regency period mahogany Canterbury, after a design by J.C.Loudon, the centre carved with tulips in the form of a wreath, single drawer and standing on finely turned supports.John Claudius Loudon's mammoth Encyclopaedia of Cottage, Farm and Villa Architecture and Furniture, first issued in 1833 and reprinted until 1867, did more to popularize and codify the range of styles available to late Georgian cabinetmakers and architects than any other publication. The present Canterbury derives from his elegant 1833 Grecian design, reproduced in E. Joy, Dictionary of British 19th Century Furniture Design, London, 1977, p.422. A closely related rosewood lyre-end Canterbury, sold Christie's London, 28 June 1973, is illustrated in G. Beard and J. Goodison, English Furniture 1500-1840, London, 1987, p.277, fig. 6.
