Footnotes

  • Literature:
    Similar sets of shelves appear in three paintings by Jan Joseph Horemans the Elder (Antwerp, 1682-1759). See also P. Thornton, Authentic Decor: The Domestic Interior 1620 - 1920 (1993), p. 86, for another of Horemans paintings featuring these shelves.

    Shelves such as these were a direct corollary of the passion for Oriental porcelain which gripped Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries. They were made in both England and on the Continent. See, for instance, a set dated to the reign of Queen Anne in the collection of Roger Warner, sold Christie's 20 & 21 January 2009, Lot 298.
