  English Regency - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The English Regency, or simply the Regency, is a name given to the period from 1811 to 1820 in the history of England.
If "Regency" is considered to be transitional between "Georgian" and "Victorian" then it would refer to the entire period from approximately 1811 until the accession of Queen Victoria, encompassing the actual period of Regency, along with George IV's reign in his own right and that of his brother William IV.
If "Regency" is contrasted with "Eighteenth century", then it could include the whole period of the Napoleonic wars.

 Regency Furniture
The Regency period of furniture history in England extends for at least the first 30 years of the nineteenth century and bears little connection with the actual reign of the Prince Regent, George, 1811-1820.
Regency furniture represents, in a sense, the taking of the neoclassical antique style of seen in Robert Adam Furniture and his descendants in later Georgian times one step further.
Hope's fine regency furniture was fairly large in form, and somewhat serious, and was made more palatable for the mass market by George Smith in his "A Collection of Designs for Household Furniture and Interior Decoration" in 1808, and in 1826 the " The cabinet-maker and upholsterer's guide".
