Unsual Regency Period Portable Book Caddy

Pine and Beech with Original Painted Decoration

English c. 1820

11” high x 22” wide x 11” deep

Ref: 36/38

In absolutely fantastic original condition, retaining the fine original painted decoration, this well drawn and finely decorated country house book caddy has great detailing to the crest and wings. The style is influenced by the work of Thomas Hope and the early nineteenth century English designer craftsmen and is an exciting provincial example of the period. Rare, original and delightfully functional.
