Object history note

This furniture, like much of the furniture designed for the nawabs and kings of Oudh, was strongly influenced by the designs of Robert Home (1752-1834), who worked as a retained court-artist to Ghazi ud-Din Haidar (nawab 1814-1819; King 1819-1827) and Nasir ud-Din Haidar (1827-1837).
