George Eyre, d. 1837, The Warrens, Bramshaw, Hampshire and thence by family descent.
Almost certainly commissioned by George Eyre for the library at The Warrens, Bramshaw, Hampshire which was built by the celebrated architect John Nash between 1801-1805 (Howard Colvin, A Biographical Dictionary of English Architects, 3rd Edition, London, 1995. p.692)
The probate of George Eyre who died in 1837 refers to a `Mahogany library table with a leather top' which is almost certainly the present lot. It is referred to with much more certainty in the probate of George Edward Briscoe Eyre who died in 1923, the great grandson of George Eyre where it is described as `An antique inlaid mahogany library table on eight supports and castors ( late Sheraton period)'.
