A fine Scottish Regency figured mahogany breakfront side cabinet attributed to James & Matthew Morrison of Edinburgh & Ayr, after a design by Gillows of Lancaster. The top with reeded edge and low three quarter up-stand, below four doors each with elliptical brass grills backed with silk opening to reveal an arrangement of adjustable shelves, bordered by “honey pot” turned and reeded balusters on turned feet. Excellent use of well figured flame veneers throughout with superb quality construction, a fantastic piece of furniture.

In 1813 the London trained James Morrison partnered by his father Mathew, advertised there “Cabinet & Chair Manufactory” with London style furniture and became a close rival for his peer William Trotter of Edinburgh. In 1820 costings were made for Sir David Hunter Blair to provide furniture “agreeable in shape, size and pattern to that bought from London” for Blairquhan House in Ayrshire. The agreement was signed in 1823 and from then until 1825 the Morrison’s supplied the majority of furniture for the newly renovated Blairquhan House.
Excellent. Cleaning & waxing, the brass grills & silks are replacements.
Blairquhan House, Ayrshire commissioned by Sir David Hunter Blair from James & Mathew Morrison of Edinburgh & Ayr
