Serpentines, storage and celebration

Serpentines, storage and celebration

Oh the Georgians. They crop up again and again, not only when searching for antiques or discussing history, but today there is something of a revival of interest in all things Georgian. On top of that, the more we discuss the Georgians (and the Georges themselves), the more we notice the legacy they left behind in the form of antiques and buildings. Georgian buildings are constantly being saved and restored – if we could only furnish them with the furniture of the period!

On the website at the moment are two beautiful examples of Georgian sideboard design, which you can find http://www.antiques.co.uk/antique/SALE-George-III-Inlaid-Mahogany-Serpentine-Sideboard and http://www.antiques.co.uk/antique/Georgian-sideboard-3 They both seem to be in lovely condition and what’s more, invite us to explore the period a little more. When purchasing antiques, it is essential to identify with the utility of the piece, or identify its original purpose. Was a painting designed for a certain room? Did a piece of furniture originally serve a different purpose? What is very important to us here is in fact how the pieces were used.
