Saleroom notices

  • Footnote: The highly individual gothic style octagonal terminals and turned bun feet appear invery similar form, although with differing decoration, on a polychrome decorated centre table offered Phillips, London, 21 May 1996, lot 250. The centre table is thought to be attributable to either Frederick and J.G Crace. A table illustrated in M.Aldrich, The Craces:Royal Decorators 1768-1899, London 1990 illustrates a Gothic side table from Knebworth House where similar primary colours are used in the decoration of the legs. or as Clive Wainwright suggested at the time the table was more Elizabethan in style and related to one of the painted dressing tables in the bedroon adjacent to the library at Arundel Castle which was supplied by Morant of Bond Street. The firm of Morant was established in 1790 by George Morant (d.1846) intially at 88 New Bond Street, London. By 1852 the firm had become known as Morant & Boyd and was trading from 91 New Bond Street and by 1858 at 81 New Bond Street. The firm’s clients included George IV, William IV and Queen Victoria. At The Great Exhibition of 1851, Morants exhibited a composition parcel-gilt and painted centre table, for the Duchess of Sutherland. The firm also produced furniture to sit along-side Bullock’s oak and holly furniture at Great Tew Park, Oxfordshire.
