Hardwick Hall, Derbyshire (Accredited Museum)
A fruitwood chair, English, late 18th century, with curving toprail above three divergent slender splats, with a drop-in seat, raised on three square-section supports with chamfered inner edge and plain stretchers.
By descent until, following the death of Edward William Spencer Cavendish, 10th Duke of Devonshire (1895 - 1950), Hardwick Hall and its contents were accepted by HM Treasury in part payment of death duties and transferred to the National Trust, in 1959.
