Circa 1800, very unusual George III mahogany inlaid bedside cabinet/washstand. The top is in two sections with its quarter fan inlay on each side and half shells on the top all framed in boxwood. The hinged sections open to reveal a section inside which is satinwood crossbanded, and a tray which lifts out to reveal three apertures which were originally for a basin and shaving mugs. Beneath the top is a simple apron with a beading all around it and a very unusual double inlaid tambour door consisting of ebony and satinwood. There is a single drawer, again with satinwood inlay banding and beading, and a wooden knob handle. All standing on square tapering legs which are framed top to bottom with satinwood. At the base is a concave stretcher with a small dish top centre. The piece is unusual and very stylish.
