The stools are both stamped with diamond design registration marks. This design, number 119119, was registered and patented by Crichley Wright & Co. of Barton Mills, Sheffield on 28th March 1859. The trade directory for 1862 lists the company (Crichley, Wright and Co.) as iron founders and manufacturers of stoves, grates and fenders. The company operated from Burton Weir works, Attercliffe Road. (Source: Sheffield Local Studies Library, Central Library, Sheffield).

Illustration 119119, from the National Archives records, discloses the preliminary sketch and design for the stools – revealing that in the actual manufacture, the makers decided not to proceed with the backs.
