Mark Gooch Marblizes
This handsome and highly important Scagliola marble and ormolu enriched sideboard and its accompanying pedestals attributed to S. Jamar is exactly the type of work demanded by wealthy and important clients to decorate their houses. It draws its inspiration from the classical world, with numerous motifs making reference to poetry, literature and to learning, but also from France and the grandeur of Louis Quatorze's court at Versailles. In particular, its robust architecture corresponds to that of a pillar-fronted bookcase bearing the brand of S. Jamar, who traded as a 'French cabinet maker' in London's Wardour Street and claimed in 1818 that much of his furniture, bronze-enriched in the French manner, was 'equal to any made in Paris.'

Gooch And Clinkscales Dulcimer 

The Dulcimer has its origins in both Spanish Europe and the Middle East. It was the forerunner of the guitar and banjo in the America. The name dulcimer come from the Latin and Greek meaning free standing instrument like the Sitar. Dulce and Melos are found in Samuel's works, which when combined means "sweet tune." When the dulcimer's stringed keyboard was adapted to the Pianoforte, which offered a more dynamic musical range, it ultimately eclipsed the Dulcimer's popularity. This was especially true among the aristocrats of the early 1800's. In Taylor Colleridge's poem in 1816, "Kubla Khan," he refers to "a damsel with a dulcimer. Napoleon's Josephine gave recitals using the Dulcimer.   This was a combined effort of Mark and June, who did all the wonderful painting.
