Note: The scale of these wonderful chairs is highly unusual. The legs are disproportionately short, and the backs are almost of full chair height. No other chairs of these distinctive proportions have come to light. A set of six side chairs of the same design, but of full size, and without doubt by the same maker, are illustrated in volume II of M. Harris’s three-volume sale catalogue. The child’s chairs may have been part of the same suite.
