A Victorian walnut marquetry writing table attributed to Edward Holmes Baldock, the shaped rectangular top with an oval panel inset with tooled green leather, the frieze with two small side drawers, all raised on solid baluster end supports joined by a spiral-turned stretcher, decorated with bone, stained and exotic woods with naturalistic flowers and boxwood stringing. English, circa 1850.
Footnote: Edward Holmes Baldock, (1777-1845) was one of the first London antique dealers, in the modern sense of the word. He principally dealt in 18th century French furniture and Chinese Export porcelain, and commissioned furniture to compliment his inventory. This furniture has strong French design influences, but retains subtle English details (the floral marquetry often depicts English wildflowers). His clients included the Duke of Buccleuch and George IV. His dispersal sale was in 1843 on his retirement.
