Regency Mahogany Sofa Table of Small Proportions William Trotter



Extremely fine and of small proportions, George IV (late Regency) mahogany sofa table attributable to William Trotter of Edinburgh. Scottish, circa 1825. Of unusually small proportions and almost certainly made by William Trotter of Edinburgh. The crossbanded drop-leaf rectangular top, above a inset finely gradrooned paneled drawer, enclosed by conforming rectangular panels, over a lobed baluster reeded and carved tapering stem supported by a Quattro form base of carved out splayed hipped sabre legs terminating in the original gilt scrolled capped castors. Wonderful natural color of the outstanding timber used. The overall quality of this table including choice of timber, various design elements, the fine gadrooning, design of the base and castors used are all indicative of the highly regarded Scottish cabinet maker of this period William Trotter of Edinburgh. William Trotter (1772-1833) was the son of Thomas Trotter a member of The Edinburgh Merchant Company of which he became a member of himself in 1797. In 1809 he was the sole proprietor of the firm Young & Trotter, furnishing the library and picture gallery designed by the architect Robert Reid at Paxton House for George Home. He traded from 9 princess Street, Edinburgh from 1810 until his death in 1833, aged 61. Amongst his highlights he was famously commissioned in 1822 to refurbish Parliament House and Holyrood House in preparation for Kings George IV’s visit that year. He also served as Lord Provost of Edinburgh from 1825 to 1827. Totter was so highly regarded he has been called Scotland’s greatest cabinet maker. Dimensions: Width 31 inches - 79cm Height 28 1/4 inches - 72cm Depth 18 1/4 - 46.5cm.
