The inventory of the 'Blew Mohair Room' at Erddig, Denbighshire lists a related double-domed 'Red Japan Cabinate', whose form and fitments also correspond to those of a cabinet at Penshurst, Sussex (M. Drury, 'Early Eighteenth-Century Furniture at Erddig, Apollo, July 1978, p. 52, pl. 11, and P. Macquoid, A History of Furniture, The Age of Walnut, London, 1905, p. 145, fig. 132). The Erddig cabinet, like its companion black-japanned cabinet, is stamped with the initials 'RF' and has been attributed to the St. Paul's Churchyard cabinet-maker John Belchier. The Erddig and the Penshurst cabinets display fan-bearing figures inside the doors, as originally featured on this cabinet (M. Jourdain, 'Erdigg I', Country Life, 23 August 1930, p. 235, fig. 2). Designed in the early Georgian Roman manner, with a Tuscan arched pediment from Serlio's Architectura, 1540, its ornament derived in part from Messrs. Stalker and Parker's A Treatise of Japanning, Varnishing and Gilding, London, 1688. Its bureau form relates closely to that of a cabinet bearing the label of Giles Grendey (d. 1780) of Aylesbury House, Clerkenwell and dating from around 1740 (C. Gilbert, Pictorial Dictionary of Marked London Furniture, 1700-1840, Leeds, 1996, p. 247, fig. 447).
