In the manner of Thomas Chippendale, features of this chair have strong similarities to a chair by Thomas Chippendale.The motif on the top rail corresponds to a similar supplied to William Constable of Burton Constable Hall in 1778. The lobed feet can be seen on several chairs ordered for the Drawing room at Saltram House in Devon.The chair has the clamp mark under the seat synonymous with Chippendale and John Cobb.

Saltram House is a George II era mansion located in Plympton, Plymouth, England. The house that can be seen today is the work of Robert Adam, who altered the original Tudor house on two occasions.

Purchased from Spink and Son in April 1980.

Spink and Son Ltd was founded in London in 1666 and has since developed into the world's premier collectables auction house

William Constable was born in 1721 to Cuthbert and Amey (Clifford) Constable of Burton Constable Hall. He inherited a love of science and botany from his father, and became a passionate collector of natural history.

Cuthbert Constable married again to Elizabeth Heneage, after the death of his first wife in 1731. She bore him a second son, Marmaduke, who like his half-brother also held a great interest in science and owned a great collection of British birds.

Burton Constable Hall is a large Elizabethan stately mansion set in a 300 acre park in East Yorkshire. The history of the Hall is dominated by the occupancy of the Constable family for over 400 years, since the reign of Queen Elizabeth I.

Cuthbert Constable, William's father, inherited the Hall from his maternal uncle who had no children. As a condition of the inheritance Cuthbert was obliged to change his surname from Tunstall to Constable. In 1746, following the death of his father, William inherited the Constable estate. As a patron of architecture he decided to continue his father's remodelling of the Hall as well as improve the interior design. Although William married, due to ill-health he had no children and so upon his death in 1791 the Hall was again passed to a nephew.

Today, Burton Constable Hall is registered as a Country House Museum, with nearly 30 rooms open to the public.
