Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The feature of carved heads and their drawing in particular, would justify an attribution to Matthias Lock, although the lightness of the overall design and the beautiful free rococo leaf carving are more in the style of Thomas Chippendale, thus leaving a firm attribution still open. The quality of the carving and the harmonious design associated with both workshops, speak for themselves, however.
Note: Backing frame is a 19th century replacement.
Price: £100,000 +
