    Here's my latest acquisition, bought at an Internet auction: A Regency mahogany Canterbury. Ca. 1820. 53 cm x 47 cm x 35 cm. I believe it's as old as it looks to be. The drawer has handmade dovetails and the wood is light as old, dried up wood is. According to Thomas Sheraton (1751-1806) the type was invented by an Archbishop of Canterbury in 1780. That must have been Frederick Cornwallis (1713-1783). Archbishop of Canterbury 1768-1783. His nephew was the general who lost the battle at Yorktown, Virginia in 1781 to George Washington and the French.
