Provenance

Acquired from Jeremy Ltd, 1986.

Catalogue Note

These chairs successfully combine two of the predominant styles of the day, namely, the gothic and rococo decoration popularised by pattern books such as Thomas Chippendale’s famous The Gentleman and Cabinet Maker’s Director which was first published in 1754.

The present chairs are undoubtedly influenced by several published designs, perhaps most notably the ‘Backs of Chairs’ illustrated in the 3rd Edition of The Director, 1763 (Plate XVI).
