Footnotes

  • This cellarette would have been made en-suite with a corresponding sideboard S.Stuart, Gillows of Lancaster and London 1730-1840, Volume I, plate 367 illustrates the 'elegant mahogany sideboard table' made for Stephen Tempest of Broughton Hall, North Yorkshire in 1813, which would be the exact sideboard to match this lot. Stephen Tempest chose a lobed circular cistern from Gillows instead of the cellarette to match, which is similar to lot 185 in this sale. S.Stuart illustrates a drawing in plate 366 of the same sideboard, but dated 1810 for R.O.Gascoigne of Parlington Hall, Aberford, West Riding, Yorkshire.

    Parlington Hall, Aberford was the ancestral home of the Gascoigne family, which passed in 1810 to Richard Oliver Gascoigne who commissioned Gillows of Lancaster to refurnish the principal rooms. When Colonel F.R.T Gascoigne inherited the hall in 1905, much of the furniture was transferred to nearby Lotherton Hall, the remainder was sold in the Parlington Hall house sale by Hollis & Webb, Leeds 24-29 July 1905 and more by his son, Sir Alvary 1-2 October 1956.

    Although this exact design does not appear in the Gillows Estimate Sketch Books in Westminster City Archives, elements of the above cellarette appear on different designs, a similarly concieved lid and leaf carved trusses appear on a cellarette (No.3264) in the Estimate Sketch Books for 1823 and the geometric moulding to the front on an example (No.1771) in the books for 1805.
