125,000.00

An important George III period mahogany and satinwood cabinet designed by John Linnell. The upper part with a frieze inlaid with classical swags and tails, the doors framed in satinwood, enclose 24 lettered and numbered compartments, the lower doors with a large circular panel of satinwood within quartered mahogany veneers. The whole on a moulded plinth base. Provenance: Formerly at Castle Howard, where a collection of John Linnell’s furniture can still be found, and almost certainly commissioned by the 5th Earl of Carlisle, a client and patron of John Linnell. This piece was stored by the distinguished removals company Jas Bowman & Son of York in the early 20th century. Their label along with the house inventory number - 862, can be seen on the back of the cabinet. The drawer front labels refer to rooms and sections of Castle Howard.
