The 1813 inventory of Grimsthorpe mentions ‘6 mahogany chairs carv’d backs / and stuffd seats cover’d with Drab / emboss’d Velvet in suite with the / Bed Furniture’.
The chairs were converted from stuff-over seats to drop-in seats at some time prior to 1924, when they were photographed in situ at Grimsthorpe; the bed en suite with the chairs can be seen in the 1924 photograph of the Tapestry Bedroom.
The chairs: English, circa 1755
The needlework: English, circa 1755
Price: £100,000 +
