Favourite Item
An outstanding pair of George III style armchairs in the French Hepplewhite taste, in the style of John Cobb. The mahogany show frames of exceptional depth of colour and magnificently carved throughout with gadrooned detail. With damask upholstered backs, seats and armrests. Standing on four elegant cabriole legs carved to the knees with cabochon framed with acanthus leaves, similarly gadrooned and terminating in French scrolled toes.

The distinctive gadrooned frame and finely carved knees of these chairs belongs to a group of seat furniture traditionally attributed to the celebrated cabinet-maker John Cobb (d. 1778) of St. Martin’s Lane and who was ‘upholsterer’ to George III from 1761.

In the 1770s, Cobb was known to supplied a closely related, though less sophisticated, suite of six chairs together with a matching settle to Philip Yorke for Erdigg, near Wrexham, which may still be viewed in the house today.
