Footnotes

  • Lewis Nockalls Cottingham (1787-1847), born in Suffolk, started upon his career as a scholarly architect/designer during the 1820s. Among Cottingham's numerous notable design and restoration projects were: St. Mary's Church, Nottingham, Elvaston Castle, Brougham Hall in Westmorland, and Snelston Hall, Derbyshire. His archeologically precise interpretation of the contemporary medieval gothic revival spearheaded by Pugin, and perhaps best exemplified by Cottingham's work for Magdalen College Chapel, is evident in the present lot with its abundant use of quatrefoil, ogee and cusped arched fretwork decoration (page 33, "Victorian and Edwardian Furniture and Interiors", Jeremy Cooper, 1987).
