It was mainly used for columns, pilasters and architectural features as well as for table tops.

Luca Cambiaso (1527-1585) - St Jerome with an open book, and lion at his side

by Dreweatts & Bloomsbury

July 8, 2015, 10:00 AM BST

Newbury, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £3,000 - £5,000

Description: Pen and brown ink, with brown wash, over touches of black chalk, on laid paper 37 x 27.5 cm. (14 1/2 x 10 3/4 in) Provenance: Giuseppe Vallardi (1784-1863), [Lugt 1223]; Presumably the Vallardi auction, Paris, 10th -15th December 1860; Unknown sale; Private collection, UK. A large and dramatic drawing that captures both the pace and distinctive draughtsmanship of Cambiaso. The scale and controlled handling of the ink is reminiscent of Cambiaso's Hercules shooting his bow (Ercole tirando il suo arco), 1544-50 (Museo Nacional del Prado, Madrid Fernández Durán Bequest, 1931, ref.: D02990). The inclusion of the bed of clouds that St Jerome sits upon in the present composition, and which engulfs the lower right corner of the work, would suggest that the drawing may have been a preliminary study for Cambiaso's ceiling fresco L'Incoronazione della Virgine , in the Royal Seat of San Lorenzo de El Escorial. In this fresco St Jerome is shown in one of the corners of the ceiling, sat upon a cloud, with a large book open on his lap, not unlike in the present drawing. Although, while there are these similarities it would appear that the drawing was possibly one of several preliminary studies that Cambiaso would have executed before reaching the final design, which includes two lions, amongst other differences. Please note: the saint depicted in the present drawing is St Mark, and not Jerome as stated in the catalogue

An Oval Painted Occasional Table

by Dreweatts & Bloomsbury

July 7, 2015, 10:30 AM BST

Mayfair, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £8,000 - £12,000

Description: England circa 1790, of the Sheraton period, the centre of the top with a coloured engraving in the manner of George Morland, 90cm wide, 73cm high, 67cm deep A charming and unusual Sheraton period, painted and parcel gilt oval occasional table, the centre of the top with a coloured engraving in the manner of George Morland, depicting a bucolic group including a lady in an enormous hat at the centre and a musician with a dog; the remainder of the top painted in ochre colouring and with oval bands heightened with gold beading, surrounded by a garland of flowers and delicate leaves and an outer, scalloped border of gilt hatchwork, raised on a triform base with splayed legs joined by a shaped platform with a large central rosette and a guilloche border, the legs ending in scroll toes with blocks. The table may have been supplied as part of Lord George Germain's modernisation of Drayton when he took over in 1769. Between 1771 and 1774 the dining room was completely remodelled, possibly under the supervision of Sir William Chambers. Chambers was also probably responsible for the redecoration of the Green Drawing Room in 1773. A London cabinet-maker and upholsterer named Chisholme (probably Thomas Chisholme of 7 Great Pulteney Street) supplied a set of painted seat furniture for this room in 1774.

A Pair of George III Pier Mirrors

by Dreweatts & Bloomsbury

July 7, 2015, 10:30 AM BST

Mayfair, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £15,000 - £20,000

Description: England circa 1760, the frames extravagantly carved with stylised leaves, fruit and flowers entwined amongst interlocking 's' and 'c' scrolls on a pierced rocaille ground, the original mirror plates retaining their original backing panels and wool cushioning, 57cm wide, 168cm high These looking glasses are in remarkable original state with very little loss to the elaborate carved frames. The plates themselves were packed out behind by strips of bound wool to help prevent any movement between the fragile glass and the back supports. The distressing of the plates is due in part to the wool binding which possibly should have been removed when they were hung in the house in 1750. Provenance: Llanharon House, Glamorgan, Wales. Llanharan House was built around 1750 by Rees Powell and later occupied by Richard Jenkins and the Blandy-Jenkins family. Its most distinguished visitor was King George II of Greece in 1923. Squire Jenkins, who bought the house in 1806, made Llanharan a focus for hunting in South Wales buying 21 kennels of hounds.
