Gothick Chairs
Plate 21
T. Chippendale inv. et delin.; M. Darly sculp.
(Published according to Act of Parliament)

Plates XXI and XXII are six new designs of Gothic chairs; their feet are almost all different, and may be of use to those that are unacquainted with this sort of work. Most of the ornaments may be left out if required. The sizes are the same as in the preceding Chairs, and may be lessened or enlarged, according to the fancy of the skillful artist (p. 8).
