Description
An elegant pair of George III Sheraton period satinwood veneered card tables; the fold-over top veneered in well figured, bookmatched satinwood which is crossbanded in tulipwood and rosewood and strung in box and ebony opening to reveal a baize lined interior above a frieze inlaid with geometric panels of rosewood; raised on elegant square tapering legs which are also inlaid with rosewood.

The refined elegance of these antique card tables is typical of the finest late Eighteenth Century cabinet-makers such as Seddon. The choice of the most fashionable materials: satinwood and rosewood for the veneers also suggest a maker such as Seddon.

Seddon, trading in this period as Seddon, Sons and Shackleton had extensive premises at London House, Aldersgate Street. When Sophie van la Roche visited in 1786 she found four hundred journeymen working on all sorts of household furniture. She believed Seddon had 'an understanding for the needs of the needy and the luxurious... intimate with the quality of woods from all parts of the earth.'
