over a pair of doors with foliate mullions enclosing six adjustable glass shelves, the base with a pair of
panelled doors enclosing an adjustable wooden shelf.
The distinctive pierced swan neck cresting, arched astragals and nearly identical fret-carving of this
charming bookcase closely follows a Chippendale pattern of 1753 as published in his The Gentleman and
Cabinet-Maker's Director, 3rd edn., 1762, pl. XCVIII. The faithful adherence to the published design
confirms that it was almost certainly made by a practising tradesman in London who had subscribed to this
highly influential pattern book.
