Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    Probably Hengrave Hall, Suffolk.
    Probably acquired by the present owner's family in the Knight Frank & Rutley, Hengrave Hall contents sale of 15th-18th September 1952.




    Hengrave Hall was completed in 1538 for Thomas Kitson, a London merchant. The house was altered by the Gage family in 1775 and in 1899 Sir John Wood attempted to restore the interior of the house to its original Tudor appearance. Following his death in 1951 it was sold to the Religious of the Assumption, who ran a convent school at Hengrave until 1974 when it formed the Hengrave Community until it dissolved in 2005 and the hall was sold.

    A closely related lantern with corresponding red glass margins, sold Sotheby's Nosely Hall, Leicestershire, 28-20 September 1998, lot 168.
