LOT 152 | EARLY GEORGIAN OAK DRESSER BASE | EARLY 18TH CENTURY | £1,500-2,500 + fees

A series of rebuilding and improvements continued through the 18th century. The principal building of the new Hatton Lodge starting in 1745 by the Second Alexander Duff of Hatton. In the early 19th century the 8th Laird of Hatton, Garden Duff, commissioned a new house to be built incorporating elements from the earlier buildings, with an aim to unify the house in a designed landscape. The completed Hatton Castle included a three-storey castellated edifice featuring rounded towers at each corner, with corbelled parapets and a central gothic door decorated by shafted columns. The landscape and gardens were recognised for their beauty in their own right by commentators in the nineteenth-century, and to this day the gardens contribute greatly to the estate’s charm.
