George III Neo-Classical Settees

George III Neo-Classical Settees
Circa 1820
An outstanding pair of cream ground and gilt decorated settees in the Neo-classical design. Having four turned carved and reeded front legs, which are all raised on casters. The backs of the settee have finely decorated small panels and large ovals, each with studies of naturalistic botanical scenes, this indicates possibly the hand of George Brookshaw (1751–1823) who described himself as a 'peintre ébéniste' (painter-cabinetmaker). Brookshaw had his cabinet making business in Curzon Street, London, and later moved to 48 Marlborough Street. His paintwork was truly extraordinarily fine and beautiful. Signed on the underside of one of the seat rails.
Refreshed decoration. English circa 1820.
