Provenance

Formerly in the collection of Colonel Norman Colville M.C. (1893-1974). Sold Christie`s, King Street, June 14th 2001, lot 64.

Catalogue Note

Norman Colville's collection was assembled primarily after the First World War. The offered lot is a fine example of a collecting area close to Colville's heart: seat furniture. Margaret Jourdain in an article on upholstered furniture written for Country Life in October 1923 describes his collection as 'A remarkable gathering of fine and individual furniture'. Many of Colville's pieces were illustrated by Percy Macquoid and Ralph Edwards in their Dictionary of English Furniture, London, 1927. Although they do not use an image of this stool, they do illustrate an example with similar pierced and carved scroll brackets to each leg in the collection of the Duke of Buccleuch, vol. II p. 166, fig. 25.
