Decorated with the initials ‘M H B H’, for Margaretta Henrietta Buchan-Hepburn.

The design for these bedside cupboards was published by Thomas Sheraton in 1792, although Sheraton himself is unlikely to have been responsible for making them. He certainly trained as a cabinet-maker, but towards the end of the 18th century he concentrated exclusively on designing and drawing furniture. His designs, including this one for the bedside cupboards, were published in several separate volumes between 1793 and 1802.

Literature: Thomas Sheraton, The Cabinet Maker and Upholsterer’s Drawing Book, revised third edition, 1802, pl. 43.

The Antique Dealers’ Fair and Exhibition handbook, 1957, p. 15.
