17th century ebony veneered table cabinet

17th century ebony veneered table cabinet on stand, the raised and hinged top enclosing an open boxwood lined interior above a pair of panel cupboard doors with engraved gilt-metal locks enclosing an architecturally inspired interior of eleven variously sized drawers arranged around a central cupboard with boxwood strung interior and three drawers, three secret compartments, and with iron carrying handles to the sides.

Exhibited: The Scottish Exhibition of National History, Art and Industry, Glasgow 1911 in The Palace of History, bears paper label inside the top lid with sender’s name (Mrs R.H. Stevnson, Gosford Terrace, Edinburgh) and a brief description of the article.

The entry for Catalogue of Exhibits refers to the Cadell collection of Scott Relics now sent for exhibition by R.H Stevenson. The cabinet was part of group of furniture belonging to Scott that was acquired on behalf of Robert Cadell in a sale of the author’s effects at Castle Street in Edinburgh in 1826. Cadell refers to this cabinet thus; “This writing portfolio belonged to Sir Walter Scott Bart., and was used by him for many years, but more especially in his town house or lodging from 1826 to 1830, when he retired from the Court of Session.”

The entry continues, ‘The present exhibitor, who was alive at the time records that on the occasion of Scott’s visit of February 1831, her mother, Mrs Cadell, pointed out the furniture and that Sir Walter replied that he rejoiced that he had made over any rights he had in them to her.’

Peter studied painting and printmaking at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts & The (then titled) Philadelphia College of Art both in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, USA.

He’s been involved in the creative world since leaving Art college in 1987, selling paintings privately and commercially, mainly on commission.

For over 25 years Peter has been producing Fine art paintings and murals for clients all over the world. Popular themes have included: Still life paintings, Murals and limited editions.

Whilst his training is in traditional oil painting and printmaking, much of his work in the period 2005 – 2010 was made up of part digital, part traditional media – designed on the mac and printed/transfer printed onto different surfaces including paper, canvas, wood and ceramic.

Peter’s experimentations with digital art have  brought him full circle and he now works in a more traditional manner. Still life is still his main output,
