An important pair of George III carved giltwood neo-classical armchairs attributed to Thomas Chippendale, the shaped backs with a guilloche pattern surmounted by a laurel wreath tied with ribbon, the elegant scrolled arms carved with pearl and husk decoration, the seat rails carved with a running border of overlapping leaves and centred by patera, standing on fluted , tapering legs with leaf decoration, on reeded foot.The gilding refreshed.
There are several documented suites by Thomas Chippendale of ‘French’ inspired giltwood seat furniture, including an impressive group supplied to Sir Penistone Lamb around 1773 for Brocket Hall, Hertfordshire and a set of twelve armchairs supplied to Lord Egremont for Petworth in the late 1770s.
It is perhaps a large suite in the Royal Collection which are the most closely related to this particular pair. The elegantly carved neo-classical flourishes and running carved borders employed are identical. It is possible that they formed a part of an impressive commission that may well have come from HRH Prince William Henry, 1st Duke of Gloucester and Edinburgh (1743-1805).
