A pair of identical chairs, possibly from the same set, are in the collection at Temple Newsam in Leeds, England. Very similar chairs belong to a suite from Nettlecombe Court, Somerset, England, which includes window seats, settees and library armchairs. The Nettlecombe suite was discussed by R. W. Symonds in an article in Antique Collector in 1958; the current location of this suite is unknown.
