Footnotes

  • The offered lot was most likely executed by Gillows of London and Lancaster during the 1820s and relates to a Gillows design of 5th September 1820 for a similar wine cooler, albeit one with reeded feet, which was subsequently supplied to G. Wentworth Esq., No. 3064, Gillows Estimate Sketch Books, Westminster City Archive.

    Although there are numerous comparable 'sarcohpagus' wine cisterns, perhaps the closest model in recent years to the present example sold Christie's, The Cowdray Sale, Cowdray Park, 13-15 September 2011, lot 362.

    Other wine coolers following the 1820 Gillows pattern include one from Ellerslie House, which sold Christie's, London, 24 May 2001, lot 43, although Banting, France & Co were the firm commissioned on that occasion by Frederick, the 1st Marquess of Bristol for his St. James's Square residence.
