The form, materials and techniques of this table draw from neoclassical motifs and French Baroque Boulle furniture which was popular with the Prince Regent, later George IV. Boulle marquetry, the technique of inlay in brass and tortoiseshell, was perfected in France by the celebrated ébéniste to Louis XIV, André Charles Boulle (1642-1732), and its use continued throughout the 18th century on some of the finest French furniture. The appreciation of Boulle, or ‘Bhul’ as English examples were called, among fashionable Regency society was largely due to the patronage of the foremost collector of that period, the Prince Regent.
