A.W.N Pugin attributed to, for the 1st Earl of Lovelace, who was raised to that peerage in Queen Victoria's Assession Honours list of 1838. In 1835 he married Ada Byron, only daughter of the celebrated poet Lord Byron. She was an important figure, a mathematician and writer, who is known for her work on Charles Babbage's early mechanical computer and is often regarded as the first computer programmer. The 1st Earl of Lovelace acquired Horsley Towers in Surrey, built by Sir Charles Barry who collaborated with Pugin on the Houses of Parliament. Lovelace set about expanding it in the Gothic style in the 1840s. This desk probably traces its roots back to this agrandisment.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh (attributed) a Glasgow School green stained cypress wood and glazed bookcase, with bullion glazed doors with arched upper details and pierced brass hinges and square cut-out lock plates, 126cm high, 127cm wide, 34cm deep The bookcase has much in common with the above lot, made from cypress wood with stylised brass hinges that are certainly in the same style as much of Mackintosh's work at this time. The lock plates with square cut-out details are also common in much of Mackintosh's furniture and interiors and would particularly point to him. This bookcase was also purchased in Glasgow in 2009. The pattern of the bullions are asymmetrical and flow through the doors. In the top two central panes, the glass is longer to fulfil the design.

An Important Gothic Revival oak bracket clock from Middlesex Guildhall, in Parliament Square London which now houses The Supreme High Court, the highest court in the country and has a rich legal history that is evident in its design and decoration. The clock was probably designed by Henry Charles Fehr and carved by H H Richardson. It is from courtroom three the grandest of them all which is written on it's original removal ticket, that is still attached to the top of the clock. At the time of construction the choice of a neo-gothic style was unusual, but the well-known critic Nikolaus Pevsner classified it as a very free interpretation of Gothic, with an almost art nouveau flavour, especially to the sculptures to the exterior.
