Levasseur was one of several furniture makers of the late-eighteenth century who revived the taste for Boulle furniture. George IV was equally happy to acquire works by Boulle himself, such as the medal cabinets nearby, or pieces in the revival style. Here Levasseur has adapted a well-known model attributed to Boulle, a chest of drawers, and added the upper section to display a bronze plaque.

Purchased in 1812
