BAILLIE SCOTT oak sideboard

The Millinery Works


Baillie Scott (attributed)  An oak Arts & Crafts buffet sideboard, one small cupboard over arched recess between two doors over lower tier with shaped front, unusually also doors to each side, with turned legs on pad feet, all doors, the top and the up-stand with typical Baillie Scott chequer ebony and box-wood inlay, central ebony and pewter inlay to the front doors of stylised yin-yan motif, brass drop-ring handles and plates, solid chamfered satin birch panelling to the back, design attributed to McKay Hugh Baillie Scott and maker J P White, at Pyghtle Works, Bedford, circa 1905, 99cm (39in) sideboard high, 116cm (45.5in) max high, 147cm (58in) wide, 71cm (28in) deep. M H Bailllie Scott used this inlaid motif on a chair, a table and a couch which appear in the Studio Year Book 1906 and the form of the sideboard also appears, with different inlays, in the J P White catalogue of same year. This piece was probably a special commission, the side cupboards run through the back of the piece and would hold leaves from an expanding dining table. The handles are a design by Wylie & Lochhead.
