Lot Essay

The antiquarian and 'stone' painted chairs, of Roman 'back stool' form and antique-fluted columnar legs terminating in pad feet, display a Marquess's coronet and lion crest. Previously thought to have been the crest of the Percy family, Dukes of Northumberland, recent research by the College of Arms has proved unsuccessful in identifying the crest.
