The feature of carved heads, and their drawing in particular, would justify an attribution to Matthias Lock, although the lightness of the overall design and the beautiful free rococo leaf carving are more in the style of Thomas Chippendale, thus leaving a firm attribution still open. The quality of the carving and the harmonious design, associated with both workshops, speak for themselves however.

The mirrors retain much of their original gilding and have replaced 18th century mirror plates

Originally fixed directly to the wall, the back board has been added in the 19th century.

Literature: Thomas Chippendale, ‘The Gentleman and Cabinet-maker’s Director’, 1754, pl. CXLIV.
