Lot Essay

These overdoors by Jacob Bogdani came from Waldershare Park, Dover. The original house was built for a wealthy merchant from Sandwich, Sir Robert Furnesse, Bt., reputedly to designs by Inigo Jones. It then passed by inheritance to Sir Robert's daughter, Katherine, wife of the 1st Earl of Guilford and has been the home of the Norths, Earls of Guilford, ever since. Among the more illustrious members of this family, ennobled in 1554, is the 2nd Earl, who as Lord North was Prime Minister during the American War of Independence.

We are grateful to Fred Meijer of the RKD for confirming the attribution on inspection of the originals.
