Footnotes

  • A very similar pair of bergères, formerly in the Coke Collection, Jenkyn Place, Hampshire, sold Sotheby's, London 8 December 2004, lot 44

    George Smith published his Collection of Designs for Household Furniture and Interior Decoration in 1808. The anthemion decoration found on the monopodia relates very closely to a design found on plate 83 for the legs and supports of a sofa table and again in plate 44 on the design for a bergère.
