Footnotes

  • This exquisite Anglo-Japanese style table was likely influenced by those designed by E.W. Godwin and produced by Collinson and Lock in the 1870s (see a table with Blairman and sons, in their catalogue 'E.W. Godwin, Furniture', 2018, cat no. 15). The side panels in the table were supplied by Lockwood de Forest and correspond exactly to a panel illustrated in his 'Illustrations of Design' (New York, 1912), reproduced in Roberta Mayer 'Lockwood de Forest', p. 66 fig. 47. According to Mayer, De Forest's first woodwork order from the Ahmedabad master carvers was one hundred and fifty square teakwood panels, presumably to be incorporated into furniture, as in the current lot, and also for interior decorative schemes, for example those that Tiffany used to form a screen in the interior of the William S. Kimball House, Rochester, designed circa 1881.
