Y A REGENCY GONCALO ALVES AND PARCEL GILT SIDE CABINET IN THE MANNER OF HENRY HOLLAND, CIRCA 1800 ALMOST CERTAINLY BY MARSH & TATHAM approximately 84cm high, 204cm wide, 42cm deep This fine bookcase is characteristic of the work of Henry Holland, architect to the Prince of Wales, later George IV, having particularly marked affinities with a pair of chiffoniers in the Whitbread collection at Southill Park, Bedfordshire. These were originally supplied under Holland's direction to the great 18th century brewer Samuel Whitbread, circa 1796-1800, illustrated in M. Jourdain and R. Edwards, Regency Furniture 1795-1830, rev. ed., 1965, p. 17, fig. 5 and F. Watson, Southill: A Regency House,1951, fig. 36. Henry Holland was the Prince Regent's architect from the late 1780s, and worked at both the Brighton Pavilion and Carlton House. He was an authority on contemporary French design and decoration, an influence which he employed with great success in the interiors of Carlton House, integrating colours and styles to form complete interiors such as the Flesh Coloured Room or Rose Satin Drawing Room. In association with the marchand-mercier Dominique Daguerre, Holland purchased French Neoclassical furniture for the Prince Regent by makers such as Weisweiler, Jacob and Hervé, and it is from these sources, rather than his British contemporaries, that Holland's own furniture designs derive. Comparable furniture from Southhill, Bedfordshire, Holland's most complete surviving interior, is illustrated in Frances Collard, Regency Furniture, 1985, pp. 38-43. Holland employed most of the major cabinet-making firms of the day in one or another of his projects - notably Morel, Marsh, Tatham, Mayhew and Ince, and Bailey and Saunders - and exerted considerable influence on a whole generation of British designers. Thomas Sheraton's pattern book The Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterer's Drawing Book,1793 includes two illustrations of the Chinese Drawing Room at Carlton House. Related cabinets attributed to Holland were sold, Sotheby's New York, The Arthingworth Collection, Dec 12th 1996 lot 230 ($65,000) and another, Sotheby's New York 18th October 2014, The Kentshire Collection, Lot 87 ($81,250).
