Lot Essay

The distinctively-rounded flowerheads that serve as terminals for the scrolled quadripartite supports correspond to those on a rosewood stand for a display-case that William Trotter supplied to Paxton, Berwickshire, in 1815. The ash-lined frieze drawer supports a Scottish origin (see: F. Bamford, 'A Dictionary of Edinburgh Wrights and Furniture Makers', Furniture History, 1983, pl. 58)
