Six George IV Mahogany Side Chairs
c. 1820 England
Offered by Thomas Coulborn & Sons
This set of chairs is similar in design to the set of twenty-four dining chairs made for Lord Bolton of Hackwood Park in 1813 by George and Richard Gillow of Oxford Street (see Susan E. Stuart, 'Gillows of Lancaster and London, 1730-1840: Cabinetmakers and International Merchants. A Furniture Business and History: Volume 1', 2008, Plate 200, p.219).
Thomas Willson is entered in directories as a furniture broker and appraiser of 68 Great Queen Street between 1821 and 1829. Willson's were fine quality furniture dealers and the stamp has been found on pieces stamped by Gillows of Lancaster.
One item of furniture with Willson's label is known, which reads: 'THOMAS WILLSON, Cabinet Maker, Upholsterer, & co. 68 GREAT QUEEN STREET, Lincoln's Inn Fields, London. Every article of furniture for the Drawing, Dining, Bed Room and Library of first-class make. Established 1818.’ The firm's stamped furniture consists of pieces which were retailed as well as items made in their own workshop.
