The cabinet's marble-topped commode, with ormolu-enriched columns, relates to the 'Empire' or 'French antique' style promoted by George Bullock (d. 1818) of London and Liverpool; and by the Paris-trained cabinet-maker S. Jamar, who in 1818 established his Wardour Street manufactory of 'Superb French Cabinet Furniture' (see C. Gilbert, Pictorial Dictionary of Marked London Furniture 1700-1840, Leeds, 1996, pp. 273-280). Its central tablet of Louis Quatorze 'boulle' inlay corresponds to that found on a table bearing the label of the Wardour Street business founded in the early 1820s by the dealer, James Winter (ibid, fig. 1024).
Fisher Street is off High Holborn, next to Red Lion Square, London, and Thomas is a previously unrecorded cabinet-maker.
