    Literature:
    Charlotte Gere and Michael Whiteway, Nineteenth Century Design, Harry N. Abrams, New York, 1994, p. 219, pl. 274 for an illustration of this cabinet.

    With a background in painting and a degree from The Glasgow School of Art, Henry Walton (1867-1933) was a leading architect and designer of the Glasgow Style. He served as the principal contractor for one of Miss Cranston's Glasgow tea rooms, and the success and acclaim that followed enabled him to establish his own decorating company in 1886. Early in his career he ordered furniture for his interiors, but by the mid-1890s he was designing his own. A great admirer of English Arts and Crafts, Walton moved his business to London in the late 1890s, and his furniture designs incorporated the rectilinear forms of the work of William Morris and the clean, slender lines of the creations of C.F.A. Voysey. The "Holland" cabinet was given its name as it was designed for Walton's personal Holland Street residence. The cabinet on offer is believed to be the particular cabinet featured in period photographs of the Waltons' Holland Street drawing room. Alternatively, it is an identical model.
