William Marsh (active 1775-1810) and Thomas Tatham (1763-1818) were partners in a very successful firm of cabinetmakers and upholsterers based in Mount Street, London. They carried out major commissions for the Prince of Wales at Brighton Pavilion and at Carlton House. Charles Heathcote Tatham (1772-1842), the brother of Thomas, was sent to Rome by the architect Henry Holland (1745-1806) in 1794 to collect Classical fragments. Tatham's drawings of these, published as ‘Etchings of Grecian and Roman Architectural Ornament’ in 1799-1800, provided Marsh and Tatham with the inspiration for much of their furniture.

A set of chairs supplied by Marsh & Tatham to the 2nd Earl of Hensol, Ingestre Hall, Staffordshire, are carved with similar lion mask mounts.
