    The Apollonian seat, with lyre-scrolled pillars raised on Grecian-scrolled and palm-flowered feet terminating in poetic griffin lion paws, evolved from a pattern invented around 1800 for the mansion museum of the connoisseur Thomas Hope (see T. Hope, Household Furniture and Interior Decoration, 1807, pl.22).
