Originally owned by J. Annan Bryce, Esq., 35 Bryanston Square, Hyde Park, London. The collector J. Annan Bryce (d. 1923) was a MP for Inverness from 1906-1918. Prior to that, he spent a number of years abroad, first as an East India Merchant and then serving on various councils in Burma, where he cultivated a taste for Eastern bronzes and metalwork. The 1923 sale following his death included treasures from many collecting areas; the catalogue took particular note of his 'valuable and well-known specimens of old English furniture'. This actual piece is illustrated in Percy Macquoid ‘s,” The Age of Walnut”, 1905, p. 133, fig. 123. We have sibsequently fitted the correct style feet and handles.
