Footnotes

  • A pair of giltwood shield back armchairs by Gillows which share similar features to the present example, such as the exaggerated down-swept arms and elements of the carving, may be part of a set of ten chairs order by Robert Peel from the firm in 1786 (see Susan Stuart, Gillows of London and Lancaster, 1730-1840, 2008, 2 vols., vol. I, p. 181, pls. 146 and 147). The armchair here also has affinities for a design in the collection of the V & A (E. 882 1929)
