Hepplewhite Mahogany Armchair

A Fine and rare 18th Century Hepplewhite Armchair of superb design and craftsmanship. We believe this chair to have been made in the same workshop as the one described and photographed in Arther Negus book: going for a song. Negus talks of the skill of the carver ,the swags of drapery so light that they really look like material. The arms ,look at this little shaped arm here , carved with blue bell drops or husks. The result has been to reduce the arm from a massive heavy support into a slim graceful shape.
He talks of the amount of wood taken away to produce such a light elegant yet very strong chair. Note that the chair pictured in Negus book is missing its carved flowers at the top of the legs, these were probably damaged and then removed.   circa 1785

Pair Of Walnut Chairs

A pair of important early 18th century Queen Ann side chairs in remarkably good condition retaining a wonderful untouched colour and patina.
Each with vase shaped splats inlaid with the figure Erato. It is worth noting the well shaped and superbly carved cabriolet legs, also the profile of the backs, the shape of which really flows.

These chairs relate to group of chairs possibly by Henry Williams (fl.1717-58) which are discussed in Lucy Wood’s latest publication on furniture in the Lady Lever Art Gallery, The Upholstered Furniture in the Lady Lever Art Gallery, Volume I, p.205-227. Similarities in the marquetry can be drawn with the chairs illustrated.

 

Henry Williams of Long Acre is listed as joiner and cabinet-maker 1717-58, see C.Gilbert & G.Beard, Dictionary of English Furniture Makers 1660-1840, p.980. He was the successor to Richard Roberts as chairmaker to the Royal Family and was extensively patronised by
Frederick, Prince of Wales. Furniture was supplied to Windsor Castle, Somerset House, Kensington Palace, Hampton Court and the Houses of Parliament. He also supplied furniture for various members of the gentry and aristocracy including Sir Paul Methuen and Sir John Dutton.

 

See also Sotheby’s, London, The Norman Adams Legacy 1923-2009,
lot 110 for a set of four George I walnut and marquetry side chairs with
similar marquetry on the splats.
