Nothing lost in translation

25 - 26 September 2000
Oxford, The Manor House at Clifton Hampden (the Christopher Gibbs sale)

A pair of stained elm fauteuils
Designed by Syrie Maugham, 20th century, in the Louis XV style
Each with rectangular padded back, squab cushions and part-padded arms covered in ivory linen, with slightly outscrolled arms, on short cabriole legs (2)

28 June 2005
London, South Kensington

A pair of ash armchairs
Mid 20th Century, in the manner of Syrie Maugham (2)

The Bergere Chair produced by Soane

A faithful, and beautifully executed, reproduction of the pair from 2005.

Now playing: Gail Ann Dorsey - Always True

lovely lines and proportions- Nancy Corzine makes one (which) a client brought to the table so to speak and I vow to remove the overstuffed look of it very soon. Everything matters- thank you for this constant reminder
