Cataloguing

Catalogue Note

James Winter was a furniture retailer based in Wardour Street, Soho from c.1823-70. Shell-backed hall chairs of this design were produced by the London and Lancaster firm of Gillows from 1811. A comparable pair with identical shell backs stamped GILLOWS. LANCASTER is in the Abbot Hall Art Gallery and Museum, Kendal, in the Lake District (one ill. Susan E. Stuart, Gillows of Lancaster and London, Woodbridge 2008, Vol.I p.203 pl.177). A set of four similar chairs were supplied by Gillows in 1811 for the Rev. Holland Edwards of Pennant Conway, North Wales.
