A set of eight George III carved mahogany dining chairs in the manner of Robert Manwaring will lead Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood’s sale in Exeter on October 9-10 (two pictured above).

Consigned from King’s Nympton Park, a large estate in Devon, the group is estimated at £30,000-£50,000.

Manwaring described himself as a cabinet-maker trading from the Haymarket, although no marked or documented furniture by him has yet come to light. Instead, he is best remembered for a series of publications in the 1760s of Rococo, Chinese and Gothic designs, from which these chairs derive.
