George II period carved mahogany open arm chair attributed to Matthias Lock

About

The carving to the front cabriole legs and arm supports is exemplary, and well reflects the period and rococo style fashionable during the second quarter of the 18th century. The proportions are faultless and the comfort supreme, being aided by traditional upholstery applied in our own workshops and a cover of silk woven in France, very similar to the original. Illustrated double full page in Judith Miller's book "Chairs". The carving attributable to Matthias Lock. Attribution: Recent research at the V & A library has revealed a drawing for a chair by Matthias Lock which has an identical - and as far as we know unique to him - outward extended scroll at the back of each front foot. This does suggest the chair having Lock's workshop pedigree if not being by his very hand. M.Lock 1710 - 1765 was the first Englishman to publish designs in the fully-developed Rococo style, pre-dating Chippendale.
