This handsome bureau cabinet with its rich mahogany veneers is related to a design for a similar one by George Speer, dated 1763, illustrated in Anthony Coleridge, ‘George Speer’, Apollo, October 1970, p. 281, pl. 12. This bureau cabinet came from the celebrated collection assembled at Wateringbury Place. The house was built in 1707 by Sir Thomas Style and remained in the family until the mid 19th century, before being re-acquired by the family just after the Second World War. The house contained a superb collection of English furniture that was dispersed in one of the largest late post-war sales in 1978.
