Catalogue Note

From 1900 until the start of the second World War, there was a vogue for lacquered revival pieces like the offered lot (and a table, ensuite, lot 78). Many leading designers, decorators and cabinetmakers sold copies of 18th century examples, or produced more practical pieces in a take on this style. See similar red and gilt 'Chinese Chippendale' pieces formerly in the collection of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Sotheby's New York, 11-19 September, lot 2590-2591.
