Footnotes

  • These fine chairs conform in almost every detail to Gillows' "Edwards' Dining Room Pattern" of the first decade of the 19th century, pictured here. X-shaped splats of this kind relate to a set of armchairs illustrated by the connoisseur Thomas Hope in his groundbreaking publication Household Furniture and Interior Decoration , London, 1807, pl. 11, fig. 2. The form may however have been anticipated by Gillows, who supplied a set of twenty-four chairs very similar to the present lot in 1803 to Mere Hall, Cheshire, subsequently sold on the premises by Christie's, 23 May 1994, lot 106. Like the majority of Gillows' furniture of this period, the present chairs do not carry the company stamp.
