Cataloguing

Catalogue Note

The pierced 'boyes and crownes' carving on this set supplanted the earlier motif of a pair of cherubs holding a bunch of grapes or basket of flowers and became the most popular decoration for crest and fore-rails during the last fifteen years of the 17th century. Several examples are illustrated in Adam Bowett, English Furniture, 1660–1714: From Charles II to Queen Anne, Woodbridge, England (2002), p. 92-93 figs. 3:41-43.
