Footnotes

  • Made by Charles Elliott for the Tufnell family at Langleys, Great Waltham. Sold Christies, London, 24th June 1965, Lot 74

    Charles Elliott was one of the chief London cabinet makers of the late 18th century. He held royal appointments from c.1783 - 1810, and was succeeded, as royal cabinet maker and upholsterer, by William Francis - his brother-in-law and partner. The firm continued in the royal service until the end of Victoria's reign. Elliott was a descendant of the Elliot's of Liddesdale, famous in legends of the Scottish border.

    Langleys is a fine 18th century grade I listed red brick manor house in Great Waltham, Essex, acquired by Samuel Tufnell in 1711, whereupon he pulled down most of the mansion and rebuilt it on a larger and more elegant plan, surrounding it by extensive parkland. Charles Elliott was employed by descendant William Tufnell in 1797–98 to redecorate and provide furniture for several rooms. A surviving bill provides the only positive identification of Elliott's furniture. All the furniture at Langleys by Elliott is of fine quality.
