During the Regency period, English cabinet makers once again looked to the Far East for inspiration. Driven on by the Prince Regent who adopted the style for the decoration and furnishings of Brighton Pavilion, and his great friend Lady Fitzherbert whose furnishing of the Chinese room at Middleton Park were exceptional, the style became extremely popular.
Although somewhat simpler in decoration than comparable cabinets made for Brighton Pavilion, this pair use the same simulated bamboo form, in this case the wood is actually satinwood. The bamboo furniture from Brighton is attributed to Crace & Sons who may well have been responsible for these cabinets.
