The lacquer frame with black, red and gilt decoration in the chinoiserie taste. An inventory label on the reverse of "Messrs Lenygon 31 Old Burlington" Street, London. Hand written: "Front Hall Left Wall".
Very good.
Lenygon and Morant were a British decorating company holding royal warrants under four successive British kings, and they used the house 31 Old Burlington Street as a showroom for antique furnishings. The company combined the use of antiques, reproductions and architectural salvage in British and American interiors during the first half of the 20th century. Founder Francis Lenygon (1877-1943) promoted the taste for period style through publications on English antiques; the most well-known becoming standard texts for the history of English furnishings, as well as decorators’ manuals. The company bought cabinetmaking firm Howard & Sons (1820-1934) in 1934. In 1935 Howard and Sons traded from 31 Old Burlington St where they produced mainly upholstered furniture. They ceased trading in 1947 and then advertised as ‘Makers of Howard Chairs and Sofas’ by Lenygon and Morant when the company later moved to 48 South Audley St in 1954.
