Footnotes

  • See P.Aguis, Ackermann's Regency Furniture & Interiors, plate 58. Ackermann comments that the Grecian footstool,"was first executed from a design furnished by Mr.Gregson", and that "the angle of inclination given to the surface, receives the foot in its natural and most easy position; while the smaller part of the scroll serves as a stay for the heel, and prevents the sole from being propelled forward; and in reversing the situation of the stool, by having the smaller scroll from you, it answers the purpose of a jambier, or what is commonly called a comfort and ease. They have been finished, for drawing-rooms, in rose-wood, with or-molu ornaments, and carved and gilt trusses and feet; also in bronze and gold, and in mat and burnished gold, covered, with plain and painted velvets".
