Lot Essay

The bracket for bust or candelabrum, with Roman foliage issuing from its voluted and serpentined truss, is designed in the Roman fashion inspired by Inigo Jones (d.1652) and popularised by a pattern by the architect William Kent (d.1748), issued in J. Vardy, Some Designs of Mr. Inigo Jones and Mr. William Kent, 1744 (pl. 20). Related painted brackets featured in Kent's staircase decoration at Kensington Palace, while stone brackets were executed to his design for Houghton Hall, Norfolk (A. Moore, Houghton Hall, London, 1996, p. 113).
