George III Mahogany serpentine commode in the manner of Henry Hill of Marlborough
c. 1770 England
Offered by Millington Adams
Further Information: Henry Hill of Marlborough was active from 1740 until his death in 1778 and was based in the town of Marlborough in Wiltshire, which is conveniently situated between London and Bath, a very fashionable town at the time. Henry Hill established himself not only as a cabinetmaker, but also a coach-maker, an auctioneer, an estate agent and an insurance company representative. He had a large client list which included members of the aristocracy such as the Duke of Somerset at Maiden Bradley, the Earl of Radnor at Longford Castle and Lord Methuen at Corsham Court, Wiltshire. This elegant commode is designed in the George III ‘picturesque’ fashion, and evolved from ‘French Commode Table’ patterns in Thomas Chippendale’s The Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker’s Director, 1754 (pls. XLIII and XLV).
Actress Margaret Rawlings, was a hit playing Lady MacBeth and a myriad of other parts on both sides of the Atlantic during the 1930’s. Her wartime marriage to Metal Box chairman and passionate collector Sir Robert Barlow, encouraged her interest in collecting and latterly saw her making her home in Wendover, Buckinghamshire.
