As the specialist who introduced the first scientific methods for determining the specific origin of Regency furniture masterpieces, F. Lewis Hinckley argues here that no secondary metropolitan furniture centres existed in England. In his view, therefore, the finely designed and executed British masterpieces must have been produced either in London, the second largest European capital, or in the more centrally located sister capital of Dublin, the persistently overlooked third largest metropolis of the western world. Evidence to support the author's viewpoint lies in the 105 photographs culled from professional antique sources, demonstrating the imaginative design skills expressed in some of the most prestigious pieces of the Regency period.
