About this Piece
A flame mahogany, Movingue and rosewood banded nightstand. The rectangular top with canted corners and a three quarter brass gallery, three drawers with fine brass handles and on panelled tapering legs.
Inspired by the fine furniture of Edwards & Roberts, of which it is known the Spencer family bought several pieces of furniture. The firm became one of the leading London cabinet makers and retailers of antique furniture in the 19th century and was particularly famous for finely decorated late Georgian furniture. The design symbolism of this piece is inspired by a writing design in the South Drawing Room
Brights of Nettlebed offer the opportunity to own an exquisitely hand-crafted item endorsed by Charles, 9th Earl Spencer, inspired by the collection at Althorp House, built up over 500 years and 20 generations of the same family for their home.
We have sponsored the unmissable Althorp Literary Festival for the last four consecutive years - hearing famous authors in the setting of one of Englands best loved historic houses has proved to be a winning combination. We have also been fortunate for Earl Spencer to give two fascinating talks at our Dorset showroom with all proceeds donated to Whole Child, a charity devoted to improving the lives of orphaned, abandoned, abused, and neglected children worldwide. Donations are also made by us in relation to our sales of Althorp Living History furniture.
