The cabinet and stand both mid-18th century, the panels early 18th century. With label detail inscribed No. 5 / cabinet and box from / duke of Buccleuch / March 1845, some refurbishment to the decoration, the hinges probably 18th century and replacing thinner mounts. The handwritten inventory labels dating to 1845 are those of Walter, 5th Duke of Buccleuch and 7th Duke of Queensberry (d.1884). The Duke was heir to the spectacular properties of the Montagu, Douglas and Scott families including Drumlanrig, Dalkeith, Boughton, Bowhill, Adderbury and Montagu House in London – however the original commission for this rare ‘Bantam’ work cabinet has not yet been identified. A late 17th century coromandel lacquer cabinet-on-stand bears the same Buccleuch inventory label (numbered 4). The latter was sold as part of collector Simon Sainsbury’s celebrated sale, ‘Simon Sainsbury: The Creation of an English Arcadia’, Christie’s, London, 18 June 2008, lot 39 (£30,000).
