These chairs have stylistic affinities with other examples from the workshop of Thomas Chippendale which include a set of eight chairs supplied for the library at Harewood House, Yorkshire, illustrated in Christopher Gilbert’s “The Life and Work of Thomas Chippendale”. The carved detail on the back, legs and front-rail can also be compared closely with an armchair supplied by Chippendale for the Long Drawing Room at 19 Arlington Street, London, illustrtated in the same book.
The front-rails of the chairs also relates to the form of the front rail and legs of a pair of window seats, attributed to Thomas Chippendale which were almost certainly supplied to Sir Robert Burdett, 4th Bt. (1716-1797) of Foremark Hall, Derbyshire. A further comparison is another pair of window seats with close stylistic affinities, almost certainly supplied by Chippendale for Harewood House, Leeds is illustrated in Chiristopher Claxton Stevens and Stewart Whittington, Eighteenth Century Furniture, The Norman Adams Collection. The chairs also follow drawings for `French Chairs’ published in Chippendale’s “The Gentleman and Cabinet Makers Director”.
