Good set of four 'Chippendale style' mahogany chairs, stamped T Willson, Queen Street, London, with carved pierced vase shaped splats, burgundy stuff-over seats, requiring frieze brading over a gadrooned frieze and upon carved cabriole legs terminating with ball and claw feet.
Thomas Willson's name is entered in directories as a furniture broker and appraiser of 68 Great Queen Street, London, England, between 1821 and 1829. Mary Willson and her son Matthew continued the business from 1830 - 1837. In 1838 Matthew Willson started a separate business operating as a furniture warehouse, furniture works and upholstery business.
The firm was established in 1818 and contrary to popular belief, they were cabinet makers as well as a furniture brokers: 'Thomas Willson %26 Co. Cabinet Maker and Upholsterer, 68 Great Queen Street, Lincoln's Inn Fields, London.' Every article of furniture for the Drawing, Dining, Bed Room and Library of first-class make.
This important fresh evidence suggests that the firm's name-stamped furniture can be divided into second-hand pieces, which were merely retailed and items made in their own workshop for sale.
