English, circa 1895. James Blyth, Ist Baron Blyth, 1841-1925 was a party loving and philanthropic millionaire who created his wealth by founding the famous gin distillers, W A Gilbey & sons. In 1893 he bought No 33 Portland Place, a Robert Adam house built in 1775 for Lord Henry Wyndham. A man of great energy and innovation he carried out numerous improvements to the property including a remarkable Victorian extension, which included a stained glass billiard room. He also introduced some ingenious innovations such as a hydraulic wall, which separated the dining room from the music room. The ambitious design, which still exists in its original form, was powered by a water pump system concealed in the basement, It is presumed that the stained-glass billiard room was built to house this impressive table.
