The shaped door panels found on this clothes-press are a design characteristic of the St John's Square, Clerkenwell, cabinet-maker Giles Grendey (1693-1780). A large clothes-press featuring his trade label is illustrated in C. Gilbert, The Pictorial Dictionary of Marked London Furniture 1700-1840, Leeds, 1996, p. 241, fig. 433. A cabinet, with similar shaped mirrored door panels, is in the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, and illustrated ibid., p. 240, fig. 432.
The distinctive Vitruvian-scroll frieze and stylised Venus-shell badge at the centre of the foliate-carved apron are also found on a matching pier table also illustrated in A. Heal, op. cit., p. 243, fig. 26.
Related clothes-presses with ribbon and rosette-carved cornice above shaped panelled doors and serpentine rocaille apron are illustrated ibid., pp. 244-245, figs. 27-28. One of the latter [fig. 27] was sold anonymously, Christie's, London, 22 March 1979, lot 105.
