With carved winged caryatid supports in the form of Nike, Greek Goddess of Victory, terminating in animalier hoof feet, the decoration restored.
This chair embodies the spirit of Regency furniture design. The classical motifs incorporated in its ornament demonstrate the aesthetic ideals of Thomas Hope. Specifically the winged ‘Nike’ arms supports, emerging from Roman acanthus, appear on an armchair designed by Thomas Hope for his Duchess Street mansion (illustrated in his Household Furniture and Interior Decoration, 1807, pl. 59).
Similar designs were illustrated by George Smith in A Collection of Designs for Household Furniture and Interior Decoration, published in 1808.

The present chair relates very closely to a chair in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum (no. W.5-1939), illustrated in The Dictionary of English Furniture, which shares the same design of legs, frieze, arm supports and stiles, but a different upholstery scheme. Another very similar chair is illustrated in The English Chair (Moss Harris & Sons, 1948, p. 164, pl. XCII) 5785
