Footnotes

  • The above lot is clearly influenced by the Elizabethan styling of designs in Richard Bridgens' acclaimed Furniture with Candelabra and Interior Design, published in 1838 which was to be highly influential in re-establishing the popularity of the Elizabethan style over the next few decades.

    Holland and Sons rose from their origins in the early 19th century to become, by the middle years of the century, a rival to Gillow and one of the greatest English furniture producers. Recorded as early as 1815, as Taprell and Holland, by 1843 under the auspices of William Holland, a relative of the Regency architect Henry Holland, they formed a a business alliance with Thomas Dowbiggin of 23 Mount Street, who had made the state throne for Victoria's Coronation. They also worked successfully as undertakers and were responsible for the Duke of Wellington's funeral. Under William Holland the firm became cabinetmakers and upholsterers to the Queen, their first commission being for Osborne House in 1845, supplying furniture in the Queen's favoured Louis XVI style. They continued to supply furniture for Osborne until 1869 but gained further commissions for Windsor Castle, Balmoral and Marlborough House. Hollands also worked for many leading institutions including the Reform and Athenaeum Clubs, the British Museum and the Royal Academy. Along with Gillows they shared the commission for the new Houses of Parliament. They participated in many of the important International Exhibitions including London in 1862, Vienna in 1873 and Paris in 1867 and 1872. The Hollands' labelled day books are now housed in the National Archive of Art and Design in London and present a virtual 'who's who' of 19th century society.
