A fine pair of George III mahogany shield back armchairs, attributable to Gillows of Lancaster, the upholstered seat and back within a mahogany frame entirely carved in finely detailed laurel leaves, over-carved with acanthus and harebells. Each supported on turned and reeded front legs.
This pair of armchairs relate very closely in design to a Gillow's drawing of 1786, for a 'Cabriole Armchair' made for the conservative statesman, Sir Robert Peel. Sir Robert ordered a set of ten chairs at this time and it is certainly plausible to attribute these armchairs as formerly part of the collection, with clear similarities in the shape of the back and arm rails, along with the turned fluted legs featuring distinctive Gillows' capitals.
