    This 'Regency' pattern of 'ancient curule' chair, popularised in Thomas Hope, Household Furniture and Interior Decoration (1807), formed part of the 'artistic furniture' collection executed for Gregory & Co., who were established in Regent Street in 1861, but had moved to Bruton Street by the 1940s (see D. Watkin and P. Hewatt-Jaboor eds, Thomas Hope, London, 2008, no. 79).
