The offered lot relates to a design by Thomas Chippendale in his design for a library bookcase in The Gentleman and Cabinet-maker`s Director of 1754, see illustration, which has similar glazing bars to the upper section.
It is interesting to note the S- shaped locks on this piece. This unusual feature can be seen in other examples of furniture known to have been supplied by Chippendale and can be seen on a commode supplied to Daniel Lascelles at Goldsborough Hall, see Christopher Gilbert, The Life and Work of Thomas Chippendale, 1978, p.127, fig.226.
