Pair of George III Inlaid Mahogany Cutlery Boxes, Late 18th Century

About

Two George III inlaid mahogany cutlery boxes from the late 18th century. Each box has a hinged top, with a sloping serpentine front and shield-form escutcheon plates. Both enclose a retrofitted wooden interior for stationery or organization of a variety of objects. This pair of cutlery boxes is structurally sound and ready to place on a desk or dining table. These richly toned and grained mahogany boxes compliment any well-appointed office or home. Some of the most celebrated English cabinetmakers rose to prominence during the Georgian era, those being Thomas Chippendale, Robert Adam, Thomas Sheraton and George Hepplewhite. During the reign of George III, one of the most significant turning points in the fashions of the interior was moving away from the robustly and heavily carved Rococo styles of Thomas Chippendale to the more rectilinear, Neoclassical designs of Adam, Sheraton and Hepplewhite. Mahogany became king, gone was the era of walnut and claw-and-ball feet. Gaining popularity between 1750 and 1790, Neoclassicism favored classic motifs and symmetry. Property from an East Coast Collector. With a clean, complete well-maintained appearance, structurally sound and ready to use. With general overall marks, nicks, surface scratches, tiny losses and repairs consistent with age and use. The veneers with scattered lifting, losses, minor areas of infill and restorations. Tops do not sit flush.
