A William IV Polychrome Table by Jennens & Betteridge

7,650.00

William IV c 1835 occasional/tilt table. Polychromed, the circular top having a highland hunting scene with a stag & dogs, the whole standing upon a barley twist column with a tripod base ending in scrolled feet. Stamped by top London makers, Jennens & Bettridge.

Jennens & Betteridge were highly regarded for producing papier mâché wares. Acquiring the workshop of Henry Clay, japanner to George III & the Prince of Wales in 1816. Their original premises being in Birmingham, they opened in London, Belgravia in 1835 & later established premises in Paris & New York.

This is a rare earlier piece as it is made of timber & features polychromed decoration. Being of far simpler design than their later Victorian papier mâchè work. A highly collectable piece.

H: 750mm W: 620mm
