Mallett Antiques to exhibit at BADA Fair
Mallett Antiques celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2015, making it one of the oldest established antiques dealers in the world, with a specialism in the finest pieces of furniture, works of art, pictures, clocks and objets d'art primarily from the C18th and Regency periods. At this year's BADA fair, they will be exhibiting beautiful and exceptional pieces from the C18th and C19th.
A key piece on show will be an Irish George III white statuary marble and brocatelle marble chimneypiece of Neo-classical design, attributed to the stone masons George Hill and Arthur Darley, of Dublin.

In keeping with the Neo-classical theme is a George III satinwood and marquetry pagoda-topped cabinet attributed to Ince and Mayhew, one of the most successful London cabinet-making firms of the C18th and one of Thomas Chippendale’s chief rivals.

The seat furniture highlights include a set of eight parcel-gilt chairs attributed to François Hervé, and supplied to George John, 2nd Earl Spencer (1758-1834), and an unusually large Regency rosewood x-frame stool which has affinities with the work of the leading Scottish cabinet-maker William Trotter (1772–1833). Trotter’s documented work includes a commission for Paxton House in 1814 with related characteristics.
