George IV Mahogany Dressing/Writing Table Attributed to Morel & Hughes
the rectangular top with tall gallery and raised on trestle supports
Provenance: Duke of Northumberland, Alnwick Castle
Nicholas Morel & Robert Hughes supplied furniture for Northumberland House in the 1820s. Their association ended in 1826, but Robert Hughes continued to supply furniture to the Duke for Syon Park as well as Northumberland House. The present piece might post-date the partnership, so may have been supplied by Robert Hughes on his own.
