For the collector of fine antiques we are proud to present our newest acquisition by T.Wilson of 68 Queen Street, London (clearly stamped on the drawer). This gorgeous mahogany piece has crossbanding and original pulls. Rare. Period Regency.

The impressed mark, ‘T. WILLSON 68 GREAT QUEEN STREET LONDON’, has been found stamped on some late 18th-/early-19th century furniture.

This is perhaps the same man who in December 1837 supplied a ‘Large Library Table with 8 drawers, top covered with leather’, for the Soane Museum. Available material suggests that the Willsons were likely to have been dealers in good quality second-hand furniture (brokers), although one label has been traced which states that the firm was founded in 1818 and that Thomas Willson was a cabinet maker as well as furniture broker.
