After a hiatus of a couple of months I am delighted to send you a copy of my latest newsletter featuring some beautiful Chippendale furniture.

It is very rare to find a pair of Chippendale stools and the pair illustrated below are particularly handsome; they are typical of the Chinese Chippendale phase with the blind fretwork decoration to their legs. The elegant tripod table is a little earlier in date and its design relates to pieces that Chippendale supplied to Dumfries House, Scotland; the French scroll toe is a feature on all the Dumfries House seat furniture by Chippendale.

The Chippendale dining chairs shown below date towards the end of the period and this is reflected in the design of their backs being a little more elegant and free flowing. These chairs have survived in remarkably good condition and their generous proportions, with a high back and broad seat, make them the perfect choice for a classic dining room.

There are many more items from the Chippendale period on my website and they can be viewed by clicking here.

The website has just been updated with many new items from the Seventeenth Century to the late Nineteenth Century. If you don't find what you are looking for please let me know, I am more than happy to source specific items that may not be in stock.

Georgian Chippendale mahogany tripod table.

1755

Height: 29" (73.5cm)

Diameter: 34.25" (87cm)

An elegant George III Chippendale period mahogany tripod table; the table's well figured tilt-top above a fluted stem with a wrythen turned vase and raised on beautifully drawn legs carved with C scrolls and terminating in French scroll toe. This tripod table retains a beautiful faded colour and patination.

The elegant French scroll toe found on this tripod table can also be seen on the furniture that Thomas Chippendale supplied to Dumfries House, Scotland. Dumfries House is one of Chippendale's earliest and best documented commissions and I would highly recommend a visit if you are in Southern Scotland.
