George IV especially enjoyed works of furniture with highly finished surfaces like these colourful plaques of inlaid hardstones (or pietra dura). Created in seventeenth-century Florence, the plaques were later incorporated into this elegantly restrained, French, neo-classical cabinet. This object was displayed in the Blue Velvet Closet at Carlton House.

First recorded in Carlton House in 1807
