They did an amazing job. I’ve said from when the fire was still burning in Norte Dame, these are the people that need to be contacted to repair that cathedral.

The jewel cabinet of Princess Marie-Joséphine-Louise de Savioe,Countess de Provence which was once housed by the Princess Palais du Petit-Luxembourg and end up at Windsor Castle.The furniture belonging to Louis XVI's sister in law was confiscated in 1793 and later sold off. It was acquired by George IV for Windsor Castle.

Its now part of the Royal Collection Trust

What a gorgeous piece of furniture. George IV had a good eye!

Mahogany is such a beautiful wood.

It suits the White Drawing Room perfectly. It's a room The Queen seems to use a lot for audiences when at Windsor.

Indeed. I wonder what else cost 400 guineas at the time?

There was probably an abundance of French antique furniture/art on the market following the French Revolution ,he seems to have a acquired it at a knock down price.

Yes it's fortunate for the modern Royal Collection that he had the money & taste to collect as he did.

It made up for the terrible art sales under Cromwell. Although even he realised the value of the Raphael Cartoons.

Garage sales (car boot) today just aren't what they used to be.
A beautiful piece housed where it can be appreciated by the many visitors and looked after.
