Lot Essay

The dressing-mirrors' Grecian-stepped plinths combined with cluster-columned pillars reflects the robust baronial antique gothic architecture of William Atkinson (d.1839); and relates to that of the wash-stands (lots 407 and 408), and another now shown in Scone's Queen Victoria Suite ( J. Jauncey, Scone Palace, 2003, p.38).
