INTRODUCTION We are delighted to present our first printed catalogue highlighting a selection of the fine English antique furniture currently available in our collection. The pieces range predominantly from the late seventeenth century and the reign of William & Mary through to the early nineteenth century Regency period. The names of some of the most celebrated eighteenth century English craftsmen, including James Moore, Gerrit Jensen, John Cobb, Thomas Sheraton, George Hepplewhite and, of course, Thomas Chippendale can be found in the following pages.

The pieces in this catalogue have all been chosen for their individual attributes that make English antique furniture so inherently interesting and appealing. In particular, we have concentrated on provenance and attribution, as well as fantastic decoration, design, colour, and patina. These are the characteristics that bring antiques to life and that make them a timeless addition for any interior, old or new. We have been very encouraged with growing levels of interest once again and we hope that you will enjoy browsing through this catalogue. You are welcome to come and see any of the pieces in person in our St. James’s gallery in London. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to get in contact with us, should you require any further information at all.

A PAIR OF GEORGE I GREEN JAPANNED SIDE CHAIRS In the manner of Giles Grendey England, circa 1725

A very fine pair of George I green japanned and gilt chinoiserie decorated side chairs in the manner of Giles Grendey. The caned high backs surmounted with a gilded cresting, the moulded square seats also caned, standing on cabriole legs to the front and raked rear legs, all joined by a turned and moulded shaped stretcher, with stylised transitional feet combining both the pad and the claw and ball designs. Each chair fantastically decorated with gilt chinoiseries throughout on a green background. The seats now with yellow silk squab cushions.

Width 23 in (58.5 cm) Depth 21 in (53.0 cm) Height: 46½ in (118.0 cm)

Giles Grendey Giles Grendey (1693-1780) was a leading London cabinet-maker, born in Wooton-under-Edge in Gloucestershire, and was apprenticed to the London joiner William Sherborne before becoming a freeman in 1716. Taking his own apprentices by 1726, Grendey was elected to the Livery of the Joiners’ Company in 1729. His first workshop was at St. Paul’s, Covent Garden, moving to St. John’s Square, Clerkenwell in 1772 where he developed a thriving export trade. His labels advertised that he ‘makes and sells all sorts of cabinet goods, chairs, and glasses.’ It was reported in various newspapers on August 7, 1731, including the Daily Post and Daily Advertiser, that a fire which started on adjacent premises to Mr Grendey ‘a Cabinet-maker and Chairmaker’ caused him to lose furniture to the value of £1,000, which he ‘had packed for Exportation against the next morning.’

Throughout his career, Grendey provided furniture for Sir Jacob de Bouverie at Longford Castle, Lord Scarsdale at Kedleston Hall, and Henry Hoare at Stourhead. His most famous recorded commission came from the Duke of Infantado, Lazcano, northern Spain, who acquired from Grendey a suite of some seventy pieces of scarlet japanned furniture, which included cabinets, tables, torcheres, mirrors and chairs.

Grendey’s daughter Sukey married John Cobb, a cabinet-maker who partnered with William Vile and also served as a cabinetmaker for George III.

Literature Apollo, November 1977.

Comparative Literature R. Baarsen, ‘Seventeeth-Century European Cabinet-Making at Ham House,’ Ham House: 400 Years of Collecting and Patronage, Yale University Press, 2013, p. 202, fig. 195-196.

A related mirror, circa 1675, with similar floral marquetry and of virtually identical dimensions was in the collection of the 1st Duke and Duchess of Lauderdale, at Ham House, Surrey. The Ham House mirror has recently been attributed to Gerrit Jensen (d. 1715), who was Dutch by birth but worked for the English Royal Family and nobility. The similarity of the present mirror to the Ham House mirror, described as English, demonstrates the close affinity and cross-over between English and Dutch furniture of this period.

MACKINNON FINE FURNITURE

A PAIR OF GEORGE I GILTWOOD TORCHERES In the manner of James Moore England, circa 1715

A magnificent pair of George I giltwood torcheres in the manner of James Moore. Each with a circular dished top with tapering acanthus wrapped underside above a paneled faceted shaft exquisitely carved with foliage, strapwork and husk swags on a double-scrolled tripartite base.

Height: 39½ in (100 cm) Diameter of top: 12 in (31 cm)

Provenance The private collection of Moss Harris

This pair of torcheres would have formed part of an early eighteenth century pier set supplied en suite with a table and mirror by an accomplished cabinet-maker such as James Moore (d. 1726). The design for these torcheres, which would have been used to support either vases or candelabra, was first introduced at the French court in the late seventeenth century and then popularized by William III’s ‘architect’ and ornamentalist Daniel Marot (d. 1752) in his Oeuvres, 1703.

30

These torcheres have marked affinities with a torchere in the Royal Collection at Hampton Court supplied by James Moore, circa 1710-15 (R. Edwards and M. Jourdain, Georgian CabinetMakers, London, 1955, p.135, fig. 30). A virtually identical pair of torcheres attributed to James Moore, but with associated plinths, were sold anonymously Sotheby’s London, 5 July 1996, lot 16.

James Moore specialized in finely carved gilt-gesso work embellished with strapwork and scrolling foliage in a rich baroque manner. Little is known of Moore’s early life and apprenticeship. However, from 1714 he worked in partnership with London’s most prominent glass-maker John Gumley, and in 1715 they succeeded Gerrit Jensen as Royal cabinet-makers. Aside from his Royal commission with Gumley, Moore was also independently employed by Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough, eventually supervising the building work at Blenheim Palace after Vanbrugh’s dismissal in 1716. She later referred to Moore as her ‘Oracle.’ Moore’s other distinguished private clients included the Earl of Burlington and the Duke of Montagu at Boughton House.

A GEORGE III GILTWOOD MIRROR In the manner of John Cobb England, circa 1775

A very fine George III giltwood mirror in the manner of John Cobb. The rectangular plate with a moulded gilt border with rocaille decoration at the base corners and stylised acanthus on the top corners, the glass flanked by extremely elegant elongated C scrolls of a particularly light and airy design. The sides further decorated with scrolling foliage and carved flowers. The top of the mirror surmounted by a magnificent carved anthemion with trailing harebells. Restoration and replacements to carved decoration. Height: 78¾ in (200 cm) Width: 37½ in (95 cm)

Provenance The collection of Lady Nutting, Chicheley Hall, Buckinghamshire

The mirror closely relates to the work of the cabinetmaker John Cobb who worked in partnership with William Vile. Together they undertook a number of important commissions as Royal cabinet-makers on behalf of King George III and Queen Charlotte. Cobb’s work epitomized the neo-classical taste for restrained silhouettes, while he also incorporated decorative embellishments in the form of C-scrolls, acanthus leaves, and other classic design elements that created a remarkably light and delicate effect to the overall appearance of his work. The lightness is apparent in the use of the elongated C-scrolls framing this simple rectangular mirror plate. The unusual presence of the hanging acanthus decoration is repeated in a pair of giltwood pier glasses likely supplied by Cobb to John, 2nd Baron Monson for Broxbournebury, Hertfordshire. This pair of mirror similarly features a rectangular mirror plate embellished with elongated, stylised C-scrolls.

This mirror also bears comparison to the work of William France and John Bradburn, who in turn carried out work for Cobb and Vile. Like their employers, France and Bradburn were highly successful in their own right with a number of prominent patrons, including Sir Lawrence Dundas at 19 Arlington St and Moor Park, the 6th Earl of Coventry at Croome Court, the 1st Duke of Northumberland at Syon House, and the 1st Earl of Mansfield at Kenwood House. The distinctive use of the elegantly formed anthemion crowning the mirror is similar to the motif used on the pair of substantial girandoles created for Sir Lawrence Dundas at 19 Arlington Street.

A SET OF FOUR GEORGE III MAHOGANY ARMCHAIRS Attributed to Gillows of Lancaster & London England, circa 1790

An exceptional set of four George III carved mahogany armchairs attributed to Gillows of Lancaster & London. The magnificent shield back splats carved with wheatsheaf motifs, paterae and leaves, the exquisitely shaped moulded arms on scroll supports, with an upholstered seat, all on square tapering legs and spade feet. One chair stamped ‘RE.’ A superbly fluid design and exceptional craftsmanship with excellent carved detail and fine colour throughout.

Height: 38½ in (97.5 cm) Width: 23½ in (60 cm) Depth: 19¼ in (49 cm)

Provenance With Norman Adams Ltd., Knightsbridge, 1990s Private Collection, England

Comparative Literature Sotheby’s London, Mallett at Bourdon House, 9 March 2007, lot 565 (a single example). L. Synge, Great English Furniture, 1991, p. 126, fig. 143 (a pair). C. Claxton Stevens, ‘A group of Seat Furniture stamped RE,’ The Journal of the Regional Furniture Society, Vol. XII, 1998, pp. 156-159.

These chairs contain elements from a series of design drawings from Gillows’ Estimate Sketch Book, illustrated in L. Boynton, Gillow Furniture Designs 1760-1800, pl. 272-275, which suggest that they may be made by that firm.

A chair from a suite of almost identical design, formerly in the collection of the Harvey family at Ickwell Bury, Bedfordshire is illustrated in Christopher Claxton Stevens and Stewart Whittington, 18th Century English Furniture, The Norman Adams Collection, London, 1983, p. 82. The Harvey suite is also known to have been stamped ‘RE’. One possible explanation for the stamp, which provides a link with the Gillows firm, suggested by Christopher Claxton Stevens is that it may refer to Richard or Robert Edmudsen (or Edmonson). Edmonson’s was a Liverpool cabinet-making firm which started in 1781. Richard and Robert are both recorded as freemen of Lancaster and are known to have worked for Gillows on a number of occasions.

Pierre Langlois was a cabinet-maker of Huguenot origin who found favour in both the Royal Court and within the aristocracy. His name is now synonymous with some of the greatest English furniture, made in the French taste, during the second half of the eighteenth century. His work can be seen in the Royal Collection at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle today, and he is also known to have supplied furniture to, amongst others, the Duke of Bedford, now at Woburn Abbey. A magnificent commode supplied to the Earl of Coventry for Croome Court by Pierre Langlois is now in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum in New York.

The distinctive and unusual trellis pattern on this commode can also be found on a pair of commodes previously in the Norman Adam collection as well as a pair from the Gubbay Collection, which had been on display with the National Trust at Clandon Park until the house was tragically destroyed by fire in April 2015.

William Kent & William Jones The table reflects the influence of William Kent and his circle with its inclusion of the central mask and draped floral garlands. A drawing in the Victoria & Albert Museum by Kent shows his design for a side-table at Houghton Hall, Norfolk, which was published in John Vardy, Some Designs of Mr. Inigo Jones and Mr. William Kent (1744, pl. 41). This design features the prominent central carved mask and dramatic floral swags.

The present table also shares a particularly close affinity to the designs in William Jones’s publication, The Gentleman or Builder’s Companion (1739) for ‘Frames to Tables’ (pl. 28, 30). These designs include the distinctive use of the carved mask on the central frieze combined with draped garlands and acanthus scrolls. It is notable that the present table features shell carved cabriole legs and ball and claw feet, whereas most of the designs show the scrolled canted legs and feet. These design features might align this piece with the slightly later designers of the George II era, including Matthias Lock, who incorporated dramatically carved ball and claw feet on a number of designs.

The stands for a pair of cabinets, on display at Temple Newsam, bear strong resemblance to overall design of the present table. It is thought that these were installed at Temple Newsam by the Honorable Charles Ingram and his bride Frances Shepherd after their marriage in 1758. The 1808 Temple Newsam Inventory records the cabinets as being in the Breakfast Parlour. Although there is no record of the stands original invoice, there is a charge of £9 on November 7 1758 to Richard Kerby, cabinetmaker, Sackville Street, London for ‘New Gilding 2 Rich Carv’d frames for cabinets in the Best Burnish’d Gold.’ The stands of these cabinets similarly date to the 1730s. However, the construction of the Temple Newsam pair is notably different than the present example which has a much sturdier frame to perhaps allow for the weight of a substantial marble top.

A GEORGE I GILT GESSO AND JAPANNED SIDE TABLE In the manner of James Moore England, circa 1710

A very rare and important George I gilt gesso and black and gilt japanned side table in the manner of James Moore. The top and drawer fronts and sides decorated with panels of black japanned working with gilt chinoiseries. Height: 27½ in (69 cm) Width: 32 in (81.5 cm) Depth: 20 in (50.2 cm)

This exceptional table with its striking combination of gilt-gesso and japanned decoration bears a great similarity to one at Longford Castle, Wiltshire which was probably supplied for Sir Jacob de Bouverie (created 1st Viscount Folkestone in 1747) when he succeeded his brother in 1736. The Longford Castle dressing-table is illustrated in R. Edwards’ The Dictionary of English Furniture, and P. Macquoid The Age of Mahogany. Lord Folkestone employed many of the leading cabinet-makers of his day, notably Benjamin Goodison.

Goodison was apprenticed to James Moore from about 1720 and succeeded him as cabinet-maker to the Royal household— and it would seem likely that the two collaborated with the supply of furnishings to Longford Castle during this period. A related set of chairs, attributed to Moore, were supplied to Sir Robert Walpole for Houghton Hall, Norfolk.

A SET OF SIX REGENCY MAHOGANY DINING CHAIRS In the manner of Gillows of Lancaster & London England, circa 1810

A particularly fine set of six early nineteenth century Regency period neo-classical mahogany dining chairs, comprising two armchairs and four side chairs. The mahogany being of extremely fine colour throughout, each chair with reeded curved front seat rail joining similarly decorated sabre legs, each top rail with a superb panel of highly figured mahogany with reeded cresting above a highly decorative cross splat decorated with carved anthemion and scrolled birds head detailing, with upholstered drop-in seats. Armchair: Height: 32½ in (83 cm) Width: 22 in (56 cm) Depth of Seat: 17 in (43 cm)

These chairs clearly derive from a series of design drawings as published in Gillows’ Estimate Sketch Books, 1810, pl. 194-196. A popular related model, albeit less sophisticated in design, is the Edwards’ Library pattern chair of 1810, which features in plate 195. At least twelve chairs are recorded as being supplied to the Revd. Holland Edwards of Conway, North Wales, with further chairs also being supplied to Wilbraham Egerton of Tatton Park in 1811-12. Related chairs also featured in the Gothic Dining Room at Carlton House designed by John Nash for the Prince Regent. Comparative Literature S.

A very fine and elegant pair of George III period giltwood armchairs, in the neo-classical taste, attributed to Gillows of Lancaster & London. The shield-shaped upholstered backs with serpentine fronted upholstered seats and armrests, the giltwood seat frames fluted, the arms beautifully carved with acanthus leaves and the tapered fluted and collared legs surmounted with carved paterae, the rear legs outswept and similarly fluted.

74

These chairs relate very closely to a design in Gillows’ Estimate Sketch Book for a set of chairs made for Robert Peel in October 1786. They also relate closely to set of chairs, also attributed to Gillows, supplied to and formerly in the collections of William Wyndham Grenville, 1st Baron Grenville (1759-1834) for Dropmore, Buckinghamshire. Dropmore was built in 1795 and designed by the architects Samuel Wyatt (1737-1807) and Charles Heathcote Tatham (1772-1842). Although the records for the furnishings of Dropmore are non-extant, it is known that Grenville was a client of Gillows as his name appears in the Gillows’ Estimate Sketch Books for 1796. Added to this the strong connection between Wyatt and the Gillows firm, it would seem likely that the firm would have been involved in the furnishings of Dropmore.

William Gomm William Gomm was a highly skilled cabinet-maker who established his workshop at Peterborough Court around 1725. In the 1730s Gomm moved his workshop to Newcastle House in Clerkenwell Close, which had been the property of the Dukes of Newcastle. This workshop was also very close to Giles Grendey’s business in Clerkenwell Square. Gomm worked in collaboration with Abraham Roentgen in the 1730s. One of Gomm’s most prominent patrons was the 5th Lord Leigh for the furnishings of his home at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, which included 183 pieces ranging from assorted chairs, a chest on chest, a Pembroke table, and several dressing commode tables similar to this piece. Gomm also provided furniture to Richard Hoare of Barn Elms and William Weddell of Newby Hall.

78

Today, three Gomm manuscript books survive at the Winterthur Library in Delaware, which include designs for furniture, an outline of the five orders of architecture, and geographical and mathematical exercises. Gomm’s furniture designs draw inspiration from Thomas Chippendale’s Director with the incorporation of gothic, rococo, and chinoiserie elements. Of particular interest to this secretaire chest is the serpentine-fronted commode in the first manuscript book. This design features rococo carving on the apron and bold scrolls on the corners.

The design for this mirror relates very closely to a drawing by the Linnell firm with its distinctive cresting of a basket of flowers, circa 1755-60 for a pier glass, executed as a pair of mirrors, for Sir Molyneux Cope, 7th Bt. for Bramshill, Hampshire. A related overmantel mirror was supplied in 1759 to George William Coventry, 6th Earl of Coventry for ‘Lady Coventry’s Dressing Room,’ Croome Court, Worcestershire.

Literature C. G. Winn, The Pouletts of Hinton St George, 1976.

Lacquer and Japanning Oriental lacquer-ware was first imported into Europe by the Portuguese from Japan at the end of the sixteenth century, but was prohibitively expensive—and so European craftsmen sought to emulate these foreign wares. Although they were not able to master the techniques exactly, high quality japanning soon became exceedingly popular and in high demand by the end of the seventeenth and beginning of the eighteenth centuries in Europe. In England, Stalker and Parker published in 1688 their seminal work: Treatise of Japanning and Varnishing which provided a huge number of motifs and pattern illustrations—such as the figures and creatures seen on this table—for craftsmen to copy. Interestingly, often these motifs were a figment of the European imagination of the East—and in fact seldom appear on Oriental works themselves.

Hinton House There has been a Hinton House on the same site since 1490 but very little of the original building remains. With the family’s newly elevated status in 1627, the 1st Baron Poulett (d. 1649) improved and enlarged the house accordingly. A new south wing, built following the design principles of Inigo Jones, was completed by 1636. Just a few years later in 1650 the estate ledgers show extensive building work was carried out, resulting in two further wings. In the early eighteenth century, John, 1st Earl Poulett (1663-1743) remodelled the Long Gallery. It is quite probably that during this refurbishment the present table was acquired perhaps to compliment the two extensive suites of ebonised and parcel-gilt seat furniture that were also commissioned at this time for the parade of the Long Gallery.

Stalker & Parker John Stalker and George Parker were responsible for publishing, in 1688, the earliest book in English on the subject of European lacquer entitled A Treatise of Japanning and Varnishing. This influential publication offered recipes, technical advice, and ‘above an Hundred distinct Patterns for Japan-work in Imitation of the Indians, for Tables, Stands, Frames, Cabinets, Boxes, &c.’ In the treatise they explain that the high gloss finish of lacquer has such an effect that ‘no amorous Nymph need entertain dialogue with her glass or Narcissus retire to a fountain.’ The publication listed eight possible ground colours for lacquer furniture, including red.

Japanned work had several advantages over imported lacquer pieces as it was often less expensive and provided an opportunity to create designs that conformed to European taste and fashion. Nevertheless, japanning was still a costly process and these objects tended to found in only the wealthiest households.

A GEORGE III MAHOGANY PEMBROKE TABLE In the manner of George Hepplewhite English, circa 1780

A very fine George III period mahogany Pembroke table in the manner of George Hepplewhite. The oval mahogany top beautifully inlaid to the centre with a large elongated patera and central conch shell detailed with pen and ink, with satinwood crossbanding further entwined inlay of entwined foliage and berries running around the edge, with a single mahogany cross-banded frieze drawer, standing on delicate square stop-fluted tapering legs, headed by inlaid paterae, on castors. Of exceptional colour and patina throughout. Retaining original gilt brass handles and castors. Width: 19¼ in (49 cm) Height: 28½ in (72.5 cm) Depth: 30 in (76 cm)

George Hepplewhite (d. 1786) Along with Thomas Chippendale and Thomas Sheraton, George Hepplewhite was one of the pre-eminent cabinetmakers in England of the late eighteenth century. Very little is known about Hepplewhite’s life except that he maintained a workshop in London in the parish of St. Giles, Cripplegate.

Hepplewhite’s work often reflects the inspiration of the neoclassical style of Robert Adam and his contemporaries while also incorporating a number of French stylistic traits with the elegant silhouettes and slender lines. His furniture is also characterized by its use of the beautifully figured wood and delicate inlay rather than an overabundance of carving. This Pembroke table exemplifies that look with its highly figured flame veneer accented with the central inlaid decoration.

110

After Hepplewhite died in 1787, his widow, Alice, continued the business and went on to publish the Cabinet Maker and Upholsterers Guide in 1788 with over 300 of his designs that epitomized his style of light ornamentation and simple, refined silhouettes. The publication included two models for Pembroke tables on plate 62 of its third edition, published in 1794. The lower table on this plate bears great similarities with this Pembroke table in the overall form and incorporation of the central patera with satinwood cross-banding around the edge.

Pembroke Table Tradition suggests that the form of the Pembroke table with its smaller proportions and distinctive drop-leaves originates from Mary Herbert, Countess of Pembroke (1561-1621) who allegedly ordered a table of this design. However, it is more likely that Henry Herbert, 9th Earl of Pembroke (1693-1751) was responsible, or at least associated, with the origin of this design as he was a notable architect and designer in his own right. The versatility of the form made it a highly popular item in the eighteenth century home as it could be used for writing, dining, serving tea, or at bedsides. When not in use, the tables could be discreetly tucked away.

Morel & Seddon George Seddon (1796-1857), in partnership with cabinet-maker and upholsterer Nicholas Morel, was commissioned to re-furnish Windsor Castle. The company worked almost exclusively for the crown at Windsor and other royal residences, and employed many designers including the young A.W.N. Pugin. In 1830 George’s brother, Thomas, joined the partnership. After 1833 the name of the business reverted to Seddon & Sons. The firm finally closed in 1868.

A number of writing tables currently in the Royal Collection bear very close similarities to this table.
