An early Victorian brass-mounted mahogany hat stand and umbrella stand, after a design by A.W.N. Pugin, circa 1845

Provenance

House of Lords, Palace of Westminster, London
Christie's London, June 5, 1997, lot 109

Catalogue Note

Following its destruction by fire in 1834, the Palace of Westminster, seat of the British parliament, was rebuilt in the 1840s by the architect Charles Barry, who relied entirely on the great Gothic Revival architect Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin (1812-1852) to design all the elaborate interior fittings, including wallpaper, furniture and light fixtures.  Stands of this model are still in use in the House of Lords today.
