An exceptionally rare and important fine quality mid 18th century carved mahogany three seater settee attributed to the Yorkshire cabinet-makers Wright and Elwick, having a serpentine shaped back with outscrolled arms and squab cushion upholstered in tangerine silk damask, with serpentine shaped moulded rails carved with C-scrolls and acanthus clasps; on eight cabriole legs with acanthus clasp to the knees, terminating in acanthus carved scroll toes. Note: This extraordinary settee is comparable with a group of seat furniture of almost identical design: a suite supplied by Wright and Elwick to Wentworth Woodhouse, Yorkshire, and a further suite at Hackwood Park, Hampshire, which is also attributed to the same makers.
