Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    Col. George R Lane-Fox, Ist Baron Bingley, M.P (1870-1947), Bramham Park, Wetherby, West Yorkshire and thence by descent at Bramham Park.

    The above lot was commissioned by George Lane-Fox and his wife Mary who rebuilt Bramham between 1906-14, following a fire in 1828, which had rendered the House uninhabitable. The house was rebuilt under the direction of the architect Detmar Blow (1867-1939). The bed was reputedly based on a bed at Hampton Court Palace, presumably Queen Anne's bed which was completed just after her death.
