These armchairs form part of a very extensive suite of seat furniture made for George IV's new apartments at Windsor. Originally consisting of fifty-six pieces (twelve sofas, sixteen armchairs and twenty-eight side chairs), the suite cost the enormous sum of £13,886, not including the material for upholstery. The bold design was probably inspired by a leading firm of French chair-makers, Jacob Frères.

Supplied in 1827-9
