This is an extremely rare example of English cabinet making during the Adam period. It is unique in its shallow proportions, being made specifically to order. . The cabinet bears all the hallmarks in its quality and Architectural design that may be attributed to a number of eminent makers including Messrs. Ince & Mayhew who, so it is recorded, worked consistently at Burghley during the latter half of the 18th century. Research continues.
Fine and with an excellent colour throughout.
Originally acquired by John Bly in 1967 from a collector at one time in the household of Burghley House in Lincolnshire, the ancestral home of the Marquess of Exeter. It subsequently formed an important part of a private collection until its recent dispersement, once again to John Bly by private treaty.
