FOREWORD

As you will see, we have been extremely fortunate in acquiring some amazing items privately, in particular the ‘elephant’ table from Hinton House on page 19, the pair of bedside cupboards on page 30, which H. C. Baxter & Sons sold at the Antique Dealers’ Fair and Exhibition at Grosvenor House in 1957, and the highly important Daisy Fellowes side table from Donnington Grove on page 174. We were delighted recently to reunite the beautiful pair of commodes by Thomas Chippendale on page 12, which were previously on different sides of the Atlantic. A personal favourite of mine is the gesso table on page 84, which is illustrated in The Dictionary of English Furniture. I must also mention the wonderful pair of Matthew Boulton candle vases on page 10 and the pair of Lafount chandeliers on page 166. At the time of going to print, the pair of Chippendale urns and pedestals on page 142 have been sold. As always, I want to thank all my loyal staff for their help throughout the year in the gallery in Bruton Street as well as at the various shows that we participate in. I owe a special thank you to Thomas Lange and Caroline Martin for making this catalogue possible. I look forward to welcoming you in Bruton Street or at one of the fairs where we will be exhibiting. We shall be at the Spring Masters in New York from 6 to 9 May, and at Masterpiece in London from 30 June to 6 July. Please feel free to contact me on + 44 (0)20 7493 2341 or by email at simon@ronaldphillips.co.uk

1 A GEORGE I GREEN JAPANNED BUREAU CABINET ALMOST CERTAINLY BY JOHN BELCHIER The cabinet-maker John Belchier, a Huguenot immigrant, was active in London between 1687 and 1753. His business moved to St. Paul’s Churchyard in around 1717, when it was first recorded at the Sun Insurance archives. Perhaps to avoid confusion with his competitors (such as Giles Grendey, whose japanned work is certainly very similar), Belchier labelled some but not all of the furniture that he produced. Amongst his labelled pieces is a red japanned bureau cabinet of identical form, supplied to Erddig in Wales. The layout of the bureau section in this item is identical. Only the cabinet section varies slightly, with the Erddig piece having fewer drawers, suggesting that it is perhaps a slightly cheaper version. The japanned decoration on the two cabinets also has many similarities. This bureau cabinet retains virtually all the original metalwork. Two small escutcheons and a number of brass straps securing the loop handles are replacements. The turned bun feet and the giltwood finials are original. The mercury silvered bevelled mirror plates are 18th century replacements. Most japanned work is either black or red: green is one of the rarer colours.

2 A PAIR OF GEORGE III ORMOLU MOUNTED CLIFF BLUE VEIN BLUE JOHN CANDLE VASES BY MATTHEW BOULTON Matthew Boulton produced various models of candle vases in different sizes; this is one of the largest. The candle arms are unusual for this model, and to date this is the only pair known pair with this type of arm. The usual version is the scroll arm. A pair of candelabra with such scroll arms is in the collection at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire. The pierced and silvered liners beneath the lid are original, and add to the rarity of the pair. English, circa 1775 Height: 14¼ in; 36 cm Width: 15½ in; 39.5 cm Depth: 5 in; 12.5 cm Provenance: Mallett & Son Ltd., London, England; Private collection, England.

The commode with drawers illustrated in Apollo, 1953; with Frank Partridge & Sons Ltd. 3 A PAIR OF GEORGE III SATINWOOD AND PURPLEHEART DEMI-LUNE COMMODES PROBABLY BY THOMAS CHIPPENDALE One commode is fitted with three drawers retaining the original Dutch axe handles, the other with a fixed shelf. The pair have been separated for a considerable time, and we have been very fortunate to be able to bring them together once again. Chippendale produced very few demi-lune commodes. Apart from this pair, the only examples known to exist are one recorded from Denton Hall, Yorkshire, now in the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, USA, and two unrecorded in a private collection in England. English, circa 1780 Height: 32 in; 81.5 cm Width: 46¾ in; 119 cm Depth: 22¾ in; 58 cm The commode with shelf interior: Provenance: The Rt. Hon. Adele, Countess Cadogan, London, England; Asprey & Co.

4 A SET OF FOUR GEORGE III MAHOGANY LIBRARY ARMCHAIRS ATTRIBUTED TO GILLOWS Two chairs retain a paper label inscribed ‘Earl Cowley’. Cluster column legs are rarely found on library chairs, and they give the overall design of these chairs a special lightness in appearance. Gillows of Lancaster made ‘Chinese’ chairs from 1758 until 1770, and according to Susan Stuart they had an almost exclusive monopoly on the design. During that period the style became so popular that Gillows struggled to keep up with orders. English, circa 1760

A pair of stools closely related to the table and also featuring elephant heads are now in a private collection in the USA. Although this is not confirmed, they may well belong together and form a suite. The Egyptian porphyry top is a replacement to match the simulated porphyry base.

A drawing for similar candelabra by Blades is preserved in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. A similar set of candelabra was commissioned by the King of Persia; another set is in the collection of the Sultan of Brunei.

9 A PAIR OF GEORGE III POLYCHROME DECORATED NODDING HEAD FIGURES OF AN OFFICIAL AND HIS CONSORT The figures retain almost all the original paint surface. The staffs are of later date. A virtually identical pair is in the Royal Collection and on loan for display at the Royal Pavilion, Brighton. Nodding head figures were hugely popular from the middle of the 18th century up to the Regency period. Large figures like these are rare, however. A painting from 1764/5 by Johann Zoffany portraying Queen Charlotte depicts such nodding head figures in the background. The Prince Regent installed nodding head figures in the Royal Pavilion in Brighton, and a painting dated 1824 by Henry Winkles and now in the Royal Collection at Buckingham Palace, London, shows two such figures in the gallery at the Royal Pavilion: they are similarly painted and also hold staffs in their hands.

10 A PAIR OF GEORGE III SATINWOOD AND HAREWOOD BEDSIDE CUPBOARDS DESIGNED BY THOMAS SHERATON Decorated with the initials ‘M H B H’, for Margaretta Henrietta Buchan-Hepburn. The design for these bedside cupboards was published by Thomas Sheraton in 1792, although Sheraton himself is unlikely to have been responsible for making them. He certainly trained as a cabinet-maker, but towards the end of the 18th century he concentrated exclusively on designing and drawing furniture. His designs, including this one for the bedside cupboards, were published in several separate volumes between 1793 and 1802. English, circa 1790 Height: 47¾ in; 121.5 cm Width: 16¾ in; 42.5 cm Depth: 18½ in; 47 cm Provenance: Smeaton House, Midlothian, Scotland, for Sir George Buchan-Hepburn, 1st Baronet (1739–1819); H. C.

The monkey and lobster at the base of the mirror are based on the fable ‘The monkey and the fishermen’ from Ovid’s Metamorphoses, illustrated by Francis Barlow in the early 18th century. The mirror has replaced 18th century centre and border plates. English, circa 1755 Height: 5 ft 7¼ in; 171 cm Width: 3 ft 4¼ in; 102 cm Provenance: H.

So far, only a further four tables with this unusual base have come to light. Two are documented pieces by William Masters, made for the Duke of Atholl at Blair Castle in Perthshire: one of these is a tea table with circular gallery top, and the other is a supper table with octagonal top. The undocumented third table has a plain circular top and was advertised by Edwin H. Herzog in Connoisseur magazine in May 1976. All these three are made of commonly used mahogany.

The lower section is fitted with two adjustable shelves behind each door. The centre doors to one bookcase were originally joined as one, and are now two separate doors. Originally from a set of three, the present pair were sold separately by Lock & Co. The third and larger bookcase is now in the collection at Cannon Hall in Yorkshire. Interestingly, it has had the same conversion treatment to the centre doors. These bookcases were originally part of the furnishings of the offices of The Times newspaper in Printing House Square in London until they were removed in the 1960s when the paper moved to other premises. It is possible that they were originally commissioned for the offices. The paper was founded in 1785 under the title The Daily Register, changing its name to The Times in 1788.

The unusual carved mahogany paw feet to the splay legs, rather than brass castors of the same form, suggest the leading Edinburgh maker William Trotter. His work often rivalled that of London manufacturers. One of his larger documented commissions was for Paxton House on the Scottish borders, otherwise famous for the Chippendale furniture made for Paxton’s previous owner, Ninian Home. Trotter supplied many pieces to Ninian’s heir George Home. The distinctive carved wooden paw feet can be found on several pieces by Trotter supplied to Paxton.

A sideboard with virtually identical carved elements was exhibited by Phillips of Hitchin at the Antique Dealers’ Fair and Exhibition in 1954. The sideboard was at one stage fitted with a brass gallery to the back. The 18th century brass handles are replacements and the left-hand cellaret drawer has been converted to a door.

The picture frame with the original portrait in situ at Gopsall Hall, Leicestershire

87 A GEORGE III GILTWOOD ROYAL PICTURE FRAME The frame retains much of the original gilding and is a rococo tour de force with carving of the highest standard. A carver or maker has sadly not yet come to light, although there are similarities with other royal picture frames by Paul Pettit, who was the preferred carver for George II and the Prince of Wales. By the time this frame was commissioned, however, Pettit was no longer active. A picture frame with similar carving appears in a watercolour by Joseph Nash dated 1846 and depicting a corner of the Grand Corridor at Windsor Castle . The original painting for the frame was a portrait of Edward Augustus, Duke of York, by Pompeo Batoni. The painting was presented by the Duke of York to the Earl Howe as a token of their friendship. During his youth, and at his father the King’s orders, the Duke had served in the Royal Navy as a midshipman on the Essex under the command of the Earl Howe. During this service the two formed a close friendship. The carved elements of the frame, including banners and a ship with anchor, reflect this maritime connection between the Duke of York and the Earl Howe. The painting was removed from its frame and sold separately by the previous owner sometime in the 1990s. English, circa 1765 Height: 6 ft 8½ in; 204 cm Width: 4 ft 11 in; 149 cm Provenance: Commissioned by Edward Augustus, Duke of York and Albany (1739–1767); Gifted to Richard, Earl Howe (1726–1799); By descent, Gopsall Hall, Leicestershire, England. Photographed: In situ at Gopsall Hall, Leicestershire. Literature: Hugh Roberts, Royal Treasures, A Golden Jubilee Celebration, 2002, p. 448, illus. 409.

89 A GEORGE III SIENA AND STATUARY MARBLE AND FAUX MARBLE CHIMNEYPIECE ATTRIBUTED TO THE WORKSHOP OF GEORGE BROOKSHAW The chimneypiece retains the original painted panels on copper, the original siena marble insert and virtually all the original white painted surface, along with the original faux siena marble decoration and traces of the original Porphyry and Verde Antico faux marble decoration. A virtually identical chimneypiece without painted panels but with almost identical mouldings and columns, now painted white, is preserved at Duff House in Scotland. Records in the house state that it was sent up from London, but unfortunately do not reveal the maker. Two related chimneypieces by Brookshaw feature identical central painted tablets, supporting the attribution to him. One is currently in the collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the other was formerly at Grayswood Hill in Haslemere. Both those fireplaces also share many composition mouldings, typical of the Brookshaw oeuvre. Although it is unusual to find chimneypieces with a marbled effect associated with Brookshaw, restoration has revealed traces of the original painted scheme, and in conjunction with the identical paintings on copper and the repeated composition mouldings, an attribution to Brookshaw seems justified. The paintings on copper panels: Central tablet: ‘Orpheus leading Eurydice out of the underworld, guided by a cupid’. After Angelica Kauffmann (1741–1807), from an etching by Thomas Burke, published in 1782. Oval tablets: ‘Reclining Venus with putti’ and ‘Mercury playing the lyre with putti’. Both after Giovanni Battista Cipriani RA (1727–1785), from an etching by Francesco Bartolozzi RA (1727–1815). English, circa 1795 Height: 5 ft 9 in; 175.5 cm Width: 7 ft 2¾ in; 220 cm Depth: 10 in; 25.5 cm Height of opening: 3 ft 9½ in; 115.5 cm Width of opening: 3 ft 11¼ in; 120 cm Provenance: Private collection, London, England.

THE DAISY FELLOWES SPECIMEN MARBLE TABLE

Drawing by John Linnell. Victoria and Albert Museum, London (E259-1929)

91 A GEORGE III GILTWOOD SIDE TABLE BY JOHN LINNELL WITH A ROMAN SPECIMEN MARBLE TOP The giltwood closely follows the two design drawings by John Linnell, dated 1765, which are preserved in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. As the Linnells never published their designs, the table can therefore be firmly attributed to John Linnell. Specimen marble tops were the ultimate souvenir from the Grand Tour, an extended educational travel to the antique cities of Europe. Most marble tops, including this one, were produced in Rome from the 1750s onwards to exhibit different types of marble. They were brought back to England and given suitable bases, often giltwood. In this case, the base was designed by John Linnell, with the medallion of Apollo in the centre and draped with laurel leaves. Apollo, god of the arts and intellectual pursuits, was chosen to reflect the education and knowledge of the patron commissioning the table. The pendant side carvings and gadrooned toes are of later date. The specimen marble top: Roman, circa 1750 The giltwood base: English, circa 1765 Height: 3 ft 2 in; 96.5 cm Width: 5 ft 6¾ in; 169.5 cm Depth: 2 ft 3¾ in; 70.5 cm Provenance: The Hon.
