Price Available Upon Request


Set of eight decorated American "Glastonbury" chairs, a design emanating from the British architect Augustus Pugin. Each chair has a different hand painted butterfly skillfully done and original to the chairs. Provenance: The chairs were retrieved from the attic at "Aldie" which had been the residence of Wm. R.

Mercers rebuilt "Aldie" just before his death in 1927. A chair from the set appears in a photograph encaptioned "Interior of the studio at Aldie", House and Garden, vol. 4, 1903, p. 178. I
