A George I walnut settee of elegant proportions, attributed to Giles Grendey, the scrolling arm supports finely carved with acanthus decoration, resting on boldly carved cabriole front legs with further acanthus and scroll work, ending in ball and claw feet.

Giles Grendey was one of the leading figures of the London furniture industry. In 1740 he was described as ‘a great Dealer in the Cabinet Way’ and in 1755 as ‘an eminent Timber Merchant’. He also diversified into property and retired to Palmers Green, a ‘gentleman’. He was the son of William Grendey, a farmer, and was apprenticed in London at the age of 16 to William Sherborne, a second-generation joiner. He became a freeman of the Joiners’ Company in 1716 and was taking on apprentices by 1726.

Provenance:
The late Hon. Mrs Julian Berry (1921-2010) who was the wife of the late Col. Julian Berry, son of the first Viscount Camrose, Hackwood Park, Basingstoke.
