A fine George III simulated satinwood and decorated bookcase on cabinet, in the manner of Mayhew and Ince, the upper section with a moulded cornice with drop pendant decoration above a pair of glazed doors, with oval glazing pairs, simulated in Kingwood and with green painted sprays, enclosing three adjustable shelves with simulated satinwood leading edges, the lower section with a reeded edge above a fluted frieze over a pair of doors with painted paterae and ovals of simulated kingwood and painted flowers all raised on shaped bracket feet with a shaped apron between. Interior re-painted.
Provenance: Acquired by Lady Molly Mount of Broadlands, Hampshire, the country home of Lord Louis Mountbatten and then by descent to Major Drummond of the Cadland Estate, Hampshire.
I have been asked by my client to sell this bookcase for them on their behalf. It will be with me shortly, just going to be polished, so have included it now so that if anyone is interested, they can let me know.
