Footnotes

  • Provenance: H. W. Keil's private collection. Formerly part of the Keil Museum, Broadway; a museum formed from Bill Keil's personal collection, containing pieces that had been acquired from the 1930s onwards and which were 'not for sale' at any price. An oak livery cupboard, presumably from the same workshop, of conforming form and decoration, sold The Keil Sale, Sotheby's Olympia, July 2004, Lot 121.

    Comparative Literature: H. Cescinsky & E. Gribble, Early English Furniture and Woodwork (1922), illustrates a buffet with similar chequer and channel run carving to the rear stiles, p. 81, fig. 111.

    Exhibited: Beedham Antiques Ltd, Essentially English, BADA 90th Anniversary Exhibition.
