• The present cabinet is conceived in the French Empire style associated with the Soho cabinet-maker S.Jamar. Jamar's strong leaning towards French influences supports conjecture that he may have been trained, if not brought up on the Continent. By 1819 he was at 29 Wardour Street and advertised his works as 'equal to any made in Paris'. Documented cabinets by this maker featuring similar free-standing columns with engine-turned mounts are illustrated in C. Gilbert, Pictorial Dictionary of Marked London Furniture, Leeds, 1996, pp.273-280, pls. 510, 511, 518, 520, 521. A related secretaire cabinet by S. Jamar sold anonymously, Christie's, London, 13 June 2002, lot 185.
