Octagonal Oak Library Table Attributed to Edward Welby Pugin Circa 1865

A very good quality, 19th century English octagonal library table in oak, attributed to Edward Welby Pugin , circa 1865.

Edward Welby Pugin (11 March 1834 – 5 June 1875) was an English architect, the eldest son of architect Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin and Louisa Barton and part of the Pugin & Pugin family of church architects. His father was an architect and designer of Neo-Gothic architecture, and after his death in 1852 Edward took up his successful practice. At the time of his own early death in 1875, Pugin had designed and completed more than one hundred Catholic churches.

He was influenced by the neo-Gothic of Viollet-le-Duc, in which expansive spatial planning was combined with great detail. He designed churches and cathedrals primarily in the British Isles. However, commissions for his exemplary work were also received from countries throughout Western Europe, Scandinavia, and as far away as North America.
