Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The coat of arms carved to the centre of both chairbacks belong to the Drummond family of Scotland, with the Clan's ancestral home being that of Stobhall Castle in Perthshire. However, the particular branch of the family cannot be completely identified.
A number of similar chairs and settees of this type and form have been found, and include; a suite comprising ten chairs and two settees from Tehidy Park, Cornwall, carved with the Armorial arms of Basset quartering Pendarves impaled with St Aubyn, also a set of ten side chairs and two armchairs from Tythrop Park, Oxon. Those with painted crests, and a set of six padouk side chairs and two armchairs, from St. Giles' House, Dorset. Interestingly, all of these examples have backs and seats in the form of shells, supported on frames and legs of the same profile as the present lot.
