The handwritten label may, conceivably, refer to the family of Colonel Norman Colville, M.C. (1893-1974). The Colvile's (later Colville's) were originally from Scotland and it is interesting that laburnum is an indigenous wood popular in Scottish cabinet-making. Colonel Colville was an exceptional connoisseur-collector of the years immediately following the First World War. His collection was well known to Percy Macquoid and Ralph Edwards, compilers of the Dictionary of English Furniture in the 1920s and many illustrations of his furniture were used in those volumes. However, Colvile's are also recorded in Lincolnshire, at Lullington, Newton Colvile, Carleton Colvile at Duffield Hall.
