Lot Essay

It is possible that the cupboard was sold in Knight, Frank & Rutley's 'Newstead Abbey' sale on the 10th of January 1921, the initials and date having been associated with John, 1st Lord Byron (d.1652). It may havel been introducedrd to Newstead by Thomas Wildman (d.1859) who acquired the Abbey in 1818.
