An important George III period mahogany and satinwood cabinet designed by John Linnell.The upper part with a frieze inlaid with classical swags and tails, the doors framed in satinwood, enclose 24 lettered and numbered compartments, the lower doors with a large circular panel of satinwood within quatered mahogany veneers. The whole on a moulded plinth base.
Fine throughout with deep rich colour.
Formerly at Castle Howard, where a collection of John Linnell’s furniture can still be found, and almost certainly commissioned
by the 5th Earl of Carlisle, a client and patron of John Linnell.
This piece was stored by the distinguished removals company Jas Bowman & Son of York in the early 20th century. Their label along with the house inventory number - 862,
can be seen on the back of the cabinet.
The drawer front labels refer to rooms and sections of Castle Howard.
