Also of note was a pair of George III mahogany hall chairs. Their backs had been painted with the crest and motto of the Hampshire-based Cope family of Bramshill, and they realised £1050.
Stool at £3200 tops Kent day
DEMAND for good-quality, period stools continues unabated and one led Mervyn Carey's (10% buyer's premium) February 25 506-lot Kent outing. A Queen Anne walnut example, with drop-in, upholstered seat and scrolled cabriole legs, it sold at £3200, while a slightly lesser quality George I walnut stool, also with cabriole legs, managed a winning £950.
