An elm chopping block, English, circa 1768, reputedly the block referred to as 'A Large strong Elm Chopping block for the Kitchen' in Thomas Chippendale's invoice to Sir Rowland Winn on 24th December 1768. This chopping block illustrates the way in which Thomas Chippendale (1718 - 1779) worked both as a house furnisher, supplying even the most mundane items, and a maker of furniture of very fine quality.
Possibly supplied by Thomas Chippendale and invoiced in 1768, at a cost of 10s. Thence by descent, and purchased by the National Trust by private treaty sale from Lord St Oswald in 2010.
