A Regency mahogany and japanned side cabinet
by Charles Sawyer
The inverted breakfront top with a pair of raised concave-sided plinths, the frieze with a central open shelf containing a recessed drawer, the lower part with two pairs of doors inset with black and gilt japanned panels enclosing adjustable shelves and with reeded mouldings to the outer doors, on painted turned feet, feet possibly replaced, inscribed Charles Sawyer, Saxmunham, Suffolk, November 6th 1814, 143cm wide, 46cm deep, 103cm high (56" wide, 18" deep, 40.5" high).
- Please note the above description should read 'attributed to Charles Sawyer'. The cabinet is sold with photographs of the signature of Charles Sawyer which were provided by the late vendor. It appears the signature came to light during restoration but we have not been able to locate the signature suggesting that it is signed on part of the construction which is not normally exposed.
