    The design of the stools is derived from a drawing by Charles Heathcote Tatham, published in Etchings of Ornamental Architecture drawn from the Originals in Rome and Other Parts of Italy during the years 1794, 1795 and 1796. For a stool of similar design see Christopher Gilbert, Furniture at Temple Newsam and Lotherton Hall, National Art Collections Fund and Leeds Art Collection Fund, Bedford and London, 1976.
