Further Information: Matthias Lock (1705 - 1765) was a carver, gilder and furniture maker. Lock took inspiration from the works of Chippendale and was a highly regarded carver in his own right. He was mentor to famous carver Thomas Johnson who described him as ‘the famous Matthias Lock, the most excellent carver, and reputed to be the best Ornament draughts-man in Europe’ His work was always bold and robust. A table with related hairy lion’s legs and paw feet is at Grimsthorpe Castle, Lincolnshire. Another pair of related tables with lion’s legs and paw feet, with leg veins carved into the gesso, are in the collection of Earl Spencer in the Wootton Hall at Althorp, Northamptonshire.
