Lot Essay

The Grecian palm-railed sofa-table of black-figured rosewood is designed in the early l9th century French/antique fashion promoted by T.Hope's, Household Furniture and Interior Decoration, 1807. Its patera-enriched stretcher and altar plinth-supported pilasters raised on the palm-flowered paw feet griffin sacred to the poetry-deity Apollo, correspond to those of a brass-railed rosewood table that is amongst the furniture likely to have been acquired for Belton, Lincolnshire by John Cust, 1st Earl Brownlow (d.1853) following his employment in 1809 of the architect Jeffrey Wyatt (F.Macpherson, Belton House Guide Book, n.d., p.5).
