Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
This view of Eridge was made by Thomas Barton as part of a specially commissioned design for the Marquess of Abergavenny and which was used on a wine table, complete with the family motto - "Ne Vile Velis-Incline to Nothing Base". A water colour drawing of this design is in Tunbridge Wells Museum.
Please note Barton used the same tree mosaic on some of his pieces with his renowned view of Battle Abbey Gatehouse. On that view the tree is placed on the right but is sometimes omitted from the design.
The blotter cover is now re-lined in green leather.
Offered for sale with the blotter cover, is an un-used block of the top section of the tree.
