Sale Room Notice
Please note that this group of furniture (Lots 139, 140 & 141) is almost certainly Dutch, made c. 1845-50 in Zwolle by the cabinet-maker Jan Kamphuis. A similarly-inlaid table was acquired by King William II of the Netherlands in 1846 and is now at Het Loo Palace. We are grateful to Dr. Reinier Baarsen for providing this information.
