Description A stunning set of neoclassical ebonized and giltwood chairs attributed firmly to Gillows of Lancaster and London and inspired by the forms of Regency designer George Smith. These chairs are identical to a set supplied by Gillows to Colonel Hugh Mongomerie, Earl of Eglington, for his house, Coilesfield, one of the great lost Regency houses of Scotland. The chairs have been published in numerous works including Susan Stuart's multi-volume set on Gillows. Simply put, these are some of the greatest expressions of English neoclassical seating produced in the early 19th century, England, circa 1806.

Identical to a set also sold by Christie's, South Kensington April 1, 2014 Lot 369.
