Footnotes

  • James Winter was a cabinet maker, broker and appraiser, who also sold and dealt in furniture. Although Winter was active as a furniture maker between the years 1823 and 1840, his business continued to provide: 'A Liberal Price for Second hand Furniture in Large or Small quantities' until 1870.

    Such pieces sold by the Winter firm are typically stamped or marked exactly the same as the present lot (pp. 992-3, G. Beard & C. Gilbert, "Dictionary of English Furniture Makers 1660-1840").
