Note: These chairs relate closely to an unpublished drawing by Chippendale preserved in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York as part of the Rogers Bequest. Typically for Chippendale’s workshop, the carved elements of the chairs are made of lime wood.
Sir Lawrence Dundas spared no expense in engaging some of the best craftsmen of his time to furnish his lavish homes. He appointed Chippendale & Haig (Chippendale’s partner was Thomas Haig) for much seat furniture including the well-documented Dundas suite for Arlington Street in London. Here the carved elements were also made of lime wood.
Price: £100,000 +
