A pair of Regency mahogany hall chairs

Originally owned by Queen Victoria’s youngest son, Leopold, a walnut commode will add an impressive regal feel to any Georgian home. The mother of the current owner was gifted the commode as a wedding present in 1950 by her aunt, Lady May Abel Smith and her uncle. Lady May Abel Smith is reputed to have inherited the piece from her mother Princess Alice of Athlone who in turn inherited it from her father Prince Leopold. The North Italian commode is in the style of pre-eminent cabinet maker Giuseppe Maggiolini and is estimated at £2,000-3,000 [Lot 203].

Practical statement furniture like the ‘ball’ chair pulls the sale into a more contemporary direction. Created by the Finnish furniture designer Eero Aarnio in 1963, the ‘ball’ chair is one of the most iconic and innovative pieces of modernist furniture design [est. £500-700, [Lot 388a].
