Lot Essay

This chair is illustrated in Dr. B. Cotton The English Regional Chair, Woodbridge, 1991, p. 120, fig. NE37. The chair displays many features of the Sleaford/Grantham Makers and is clearly a special chair made to order. This, perhaps, explains why the chair is not stamped as it was not to be publically sold.
