Footnotes

  • See Percy Macquoid and Ralph Edwards, The Dictionary of English Furniture, rev. ed., London, 1954, vol. 1, page 295, fig. 222 for a larger but otherwise almost identical fluted and inlaid George III armchair in the Victoria and Albert Museum collection. The V and A armchair was almost certainly made by Gillows and is probably the most ambitious known example of their feather-and-drapery pattern of 1788. Though not stamped, the present chairs may also have been made by Gillow and Co. The company began to reproduce their most successful 18th-century designs at the end of the 19th century.
