This chair with its ribbon-tied Prince of Wales feathers, relates to a set of four white and green-japanned armchairs almost certainly supplied by Mayhew and Ince to Warren Hastings (d. 1818) for Daylesford House, Worcestershire (L. Boynton, 'The Furniture of Warren Hastings', Burlington Magazine, August, 1970, fig. 24). A further related painted shield-backed chair with garlanded and ribboned Prince of Wales feathers was acquired by the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1911 (illustrated in M. Tomlin, Catalogue of Adam Period Furniture, London, 1982, p. 134; inv. no. W.90. 1911).
