Lot Essay

These handsome throne-like seats, worthy of the Egyptian Hall of the ancients, feature stepped pyramids on herm-tapered legs; while their battered and palm-flowered backs support Egyptian fan-like and voluted capitals. They reflect the interest in Egyptian architecture promoted in England by T. Hope's Household Furniture and Interior Decoration, 1807.
