Footnotes

  • In 1809 Lady Amelia Sophia Murray, daughter of 4th Duke of Atholl married James Drummond, a grandson of Viscount Strathallan who was killed at Culloden in 1745.

    James began his career as assistant to the Head of the Committee at Canton in 1792. By 1800 he was a member of the Select Committee there and the following year became President - a post he held until 1807 when he returned to Scotland. In 1824 the titles forfeited by his grandfather were restored by Act of Parliament, and he became the 6th Viscount Strathallan.

    This impressive but delicate fan was probably commissioned by James from Macao for his fiance. Amelia's married monogram also appears on an ivory card case in the next lot.
