Catalogue Note

The double arched profile of the back combined with the outward scrolling arms and distinctive knees to the present armchair, have affinities with a padouk wood armchair with a brass-inlaid splat back, possibly by John Channon, recorded in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (see C. Gilbert and T. Murdoch, John Channon, Brass-Inlaid Furniture, 1730-1760, New Haven 1993, p. 128, fig. 173 and D. Fitz-Gerald, ed. Georgian Furniture, London 1969, no. 38).
