PROPERTY FROM THE ESTATE OF THE LATE WILLIAM 'BILL' TILLMAN
The Paris-trained Swedish ébéniste Christopher Furlogh (d. c. 1790) is first recorded in 1767. In that year he signed a vase-embellished commode at Castle Howard, Yorkshire, which is thought to have been executed by Furlogh at the start of his London career with the Berkeley Square cabinet-makers William and John Linnell, and before the establishment of his Tottenham Court Road workshops and court appointment as 'Cabinet-maker, Inlayer and Ebeniste' to George, Prince of Wales, later George IV. Furlogh's own furniture and the stock-in-trade of his Gerrard Street house was sold by Christie's on 21 February 1787 and described as consisting of a 'Great variety of Elegant Mahogany and Sattin-Wood articles, curiously [finely] Inlaid, several of which are on a new Construction, such as Bookcases, Commodes...' (G. Beard and C. Gilbert, Dictionary of English Furniture Makers, Leeds, 1986, pp. 323-325).
