Note: The combination of so many English native woods used in the parquetry, Oak, Elm, Sycamore, Ash, Walnut and Holly is typical of the work pioneered and promoted by George Bullock who had his own workshops in both London and Liverpool during the Regency period.
He is now recognised as having been one of the best and earliest interior designers evolving designs for everything from furniture to window dressings, curtains and marble fire surrounds. He died in 1818 but the business continued for some years thereafter.
