Footnotes

  • The ormolu mounting with the Apollo's head roundel and stylised palmette related to the style of mounted favoured by Mount Street cabinet-makers March and Tatham, whose mounted have been linked to the French Bronze-founder Alexis Decaix of Old Bond Street. Related friezes appear on a pair of bookcases thought to have been supplied for Henry, 3rd Marquis of Lansdowne for either Bowood, Wiltshire or Lansdowne House, London and sold Christie's, 14 June 2001, lot 174. Similar mounts appear on a bookcase by Marsh and Tatham supplied to George IV at Windsor in 1806 (RCIN 21705), illustrated in H.Roberts, For the Kings Pleasure , The Furnishing and Decorating of George IV's Apartments at Windsor Castle, London 2001, p.333, fig.414.

    The monopodia reflect the 'antique' taste prevalent in England at the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th centuries and encouraged by Charles Heathcote Tatham's Etchings of Ancient Ornamental Architecture drawn from the originals in Rome...1794-6, published in 1801.
