The late Regency furnishings with some later additions are in the form of more sturdy upholstered armchairs from the William IV era. The fitted bookcases with cabinets beneath embellished by scrolls and lions masks are undoubtedly mahogany and could well be by Gillow. Certainly, this is the concept of a remarkably well-informed client and furnisher, fully conversant with all the latest nuances of taste as disseminated by widely read journals such as Ackermann's Repository. There is an informed scholastic reticence in their design and that of the neo-Grecian chimneypiece, which is at one with the furniture, all revealing the educated taste of the time. The artist successfully captures the well-tested mixture of colours. A soft green and yellow close-fitted carpet is an inviting foil to the more lush reds of the upholstered furniture, all a soothing diversion for patient and consultant from the busy Liverpool life of the period and pre-dating the more corpulent forms of sprung upholstery soon to become fashionable on the floors of the rich like so many grazing herds of well-fed hippopotami.
