A George III mahogany hanging display cabinet, with dentil moulded cornice above a plain frieze, the slightly canted front, with lozenge astragal glazed single central door and fold opening conforming side panels, enclosing three shallow shelves, 97cm H, 98cm W, 23cm D. Provenance: Isabella, Dowager Marchioness of Exeter (d.1917), Deeping, St James. William Cecil, 5th Marquess of Exeter (1876-1956), Burghley House, Lincolnshire. Dr Eric Till (1904-2000) (invoice dated 16th April 1936). The present hanging cabinet was formerly in the collection of Isabella, Dowager Marchioness of Exeter, before passing to her son William Cecil, the 5th Marquess, on her death in 1917, and forming part of the magnificent collection at Burghley House, Lincolnshire, the home built by William Cecil, Queen Elizabeth I's Lord Treasurer. The cabinet was later purchased by the celebrated collector Dr Eric Till in 1936. The furniture Til bought was always backed up my meticulous research and documentation, to which the present cabinet is no exception. The extant receipt is annotated in Dr Till's hand with the following comments; 'Hanging in drawing room/This was lent by the Marquess of Exeter (5th) to Matron Elliott to furnish her flat at the hospital, with other furniture. She obtained his permission to sell it!/It was in the possession of the Dowager Marchioness of Exeter (wife of 4th Marquess) at Deeping St James.
