The distinctive eagle’s claw foot appears on other well known pieces attributed to Gillows, most notably the suite of rosewood furnishings from Nidd Hall, Ripley, Harrogate, formerly the home of Viscount Mountgarret and sold Christie’s London, 9 July 1987, (lots 60-67). Four side chairs from this suite were later offered by Phillips London, 19 July 1995, lot 18. A design for a similar ‘yew tree chair with circular seat’ appears in the Gillows Estimate Sketch books (Westminster City Archives) no.3603, dated 13 June 1827, see lot 168.
