Footnotes

  • Literature: Dr. B. Cotton, The English Regional Chair, p.294, Fig.WM14, illustrates a similar armchair by the Kerry family of Evesham. The author compares the stylistic features of chairs made by Philip Clisset of Bosbury, Herefordshire, and chairs designed by Ernest Gimson, a leading member of the Arts and Crafts Movement during the latter part of the 19th century ibid., p.288 - 295, concluding that the Kerry chair may represent a vernacular prototype, see pp.297-300.
