A PAIR OF GEORGE III GILTWOOD ARMCHAIRS
c. 1780 England
Offered by Mackinnon - Fine Furniture
A beautiful pair of chairs of superb quality. Recently reupholstered.
These chairs relate very closely to a design in the Gillows Estimate Sketch Book for a set of chairs made for Robert Peel in October 1786.
They also relate closely to set of chairs, also attributed to Gillows, supplied to and formerly in the collections of William Wyndham Grenville, 1st Baron Grenville (1759- 1834) for Dropmore, Buckinghamshire. Dropmore was built in 1795 and designed by the architects Samuel Wyatt (1737-1807) and Charles Heathcote Tatham (1772 - 1842). Although the records for the furnishings of Dropmore are non extant, it is known that Grenville was a client of Gillows as his name appears in the Gillows Estimate Sketch Books for 1796. Added to this the strong connection between Wyatt and the Gillows firm, it would seem likely that the firm would have been involved in the furnishings of Dropmore.
