Footnotes

  • An identical luggage stand to the offered lot sold Christie's, London, 6 July 2000, Important English Furniture, lot 46.

    The present example is rare in that it has a highly distinctive and elegant gallery back whereas the vast majority of such models do not. It follows a Gillow's design, dated 12 September 1822, for a 'trunk stand with back' supplied to P.H. Langston Esq., Gillows Sketch Books, pl. 3190. This design is available online at www.bonhams.com

    Eight comparable luggage stands (without gallery backs) were provided by Gillows for Wilbraham Egerton of Tatton Park, Cheshire in 1812 at a cost of £1 16s 0d. per stand, N. Goodison and J. Hardy, Gillows at Tatton Park, Furniture History Society, 1970, pp. 11 and 12, fig. 14A. This more typical (backless) version which appears twice in the Sketch Books, first features in an entry for 1807.
