George Hepplewhite, one of the triumvirate of great English Cabinet Makers of the Eighteenth Century was established at St Giles Cripplegate London, his designs being posthumously published by his widow, Alice, in 1788, under the title ‘A Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterers Guide’. Her preface to the third edition, published in 1794 observes the aim ‘ to unite elegance and utility, to blend the useful with the agreeable’. Time has judged these sentiments, and incorporated his name in the small list of great designers and makers of the period.
