Following designs by Thomas Chippendale for fire screens that can be seen in plates CLVI and CLVII of the Director , this sophisticated pole screen relates to examples known to have been supplied by Thomas Chippendale to Edwin Lascelles for Harewood House for William, 5th Earl of Dumfries for Dumfries House and for the Tapestry Room at Newby Hall . The tripod base of the stand also relates closely to that of a pair of candlestands supplied to Ninian Home for Paxton House, Berwick and to the bases of the hexagonal topped tea or work tables supplied to both Harewood and 19 Arlington Street . The elegant overall restraint of the design together with the scroll toe of the feet designed in the “modern” French taste follows the growing movement and taste for neo-classicism of the period – away from the exhuberance of the Rococo and chinoiserie fashions that preceded it.
