The superb carved backs on this fine set of chairs relate very closely in design to a single example previously with Moss Harris & Sons and shown at the Art Treasures Exhibition at Christie’s in 1932 (no. 161) – the same chair was included that year in The Illustrated London News, A Page for Collectors - A Talk About Chairs, 14 May 1932, p. 816 and described as 'A Chair that is Worthy of Chippendale at its Best; a Masterpiece that indicates its origin by its delicate tracery and its fine and graceful pattern'.
