A Guide to Georgian Furniture

Nicholas Wells Antiques specialises in 18th and 19th-century European furniture, and we pride ourselves on having an expert eye for spotting those unique, exceptional quality pieces. In particular, we think that the Georgian period produced some of the finest examples of furniture design.

No photo quite conveyed the exquisite beauty and detail this piece manifests-it is absolutely stunning!!!

Hello, Nick, The faun has been unpacked. No photo quite conveyed the exquisite beauty and detail this piece manifests—it is absolutely stunning!!! The patina is much more green than your photos showed, and for that I’m elated. And the detail of all the parts I initially asked about is GRAND! I may recline on my settee all day and stare at him—from every perspective he is in such fluid movement and is delectably gorgeous—I couldn’t be happier! A dream come true, really, and I am so grateful. Thank you!
