Thomas (1718) Chippendale Sold at Auction Prices

Draft draughtsman, b. 1718 - d. 1779

Thomas Chippendale (1718–1779) was a cabinet-maker in London, designing furniture in the mid-Georgian, English Rococo, and Neoclassical styles. In 1754 he published a book of his designs in a trade catalogue titled The Gentleman and Cabinet Maker's Director—the most important collection of furniture designs published in England to that point which created a mass market for furniture—upon which success he became renowned. According to the Victoria and Albert Museum, "so influential were his designs, in Britain and throughout Europe and America, that 'Chippendale' became a shorthand description for any furniture similar to his Director designs".

Chippendale was born in Otley in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England in June 1718. He was baptised on 5 June.[3] He was the only child of John Chippendale (1690–1768), joiner, and his first wife Mary (née Drake; 1693–1729). He received an elementary education at Prince Henry's Grammar School.[4] The Chippendale family had long been involved with the wood working trades and so he probably received his basic training from his father, though it is believed that he was also trained by Richard Wood in York, before he relocated to London.[5] Wood later ordered eight copies of the Director. On 19 May 1748 he married Catherine Redshaw at St George's Chapel, Mayfair and they had five sons and four daughters.

During 1749 Chippendale rented a modest house in Conduit Court, near Covent Garden. In 1752 he relocated to Somerset Court, off the Strand. In 1754 Chippendale relocated to 60–62 St Martin's Lane in London, where for the next 60 years the family business operated, until 1813 when his son, Thomas Chippendale (Junior), was evicted for bankruptcy. During 1754 he also began a partnership with James Rannie, a wealthy Scottish merchant, who put money into the business at the same time as Chippendale produced the first edition of the Director. Rannie and his bookkeeper, Thomas Haig, probably cared for the finances of the business. His wife, Catherine, died during 1772. After James Rannie died in 1766, Thomas Haig seems to have borrowed £2,000 from Rannie's widow, which he used to become Chippendale's partner. One of Rannie's executors, Henry Ferguson, became a third partner and so the business became Chippendale, Haig and Co. Thomas Chippendale (Junior) assumed management of the business in 1776 allowing his father to retire. He relocated to what was then called Lob's Fields (now known as Derry Street) in Kensington. Chippendale married Elizabeth Davis at Fulham Parish Church on 5 August 1777. He fathered three more children. In 1779 Chippendale relocated to Hoxton where he died of tuberculosis and was buried at St Martin-in-the-Fields on 16 November 1779.

            Feb. 17, 2022

            Set of four chairs, Chippendale Style; mid 20th century. Carved wood. They present chips.

            Est: €300 - €400

            Set of four chairs, Chippendale style; mid 20th century. Carved wood. Damaged carving and upholstery. Measurements: 97 x 49 x 46 cm (x4). Set formed by four chairs inspired by the work of the English cabinetmaker Thomas Chippendale (1718-1779), main representative of the British rococo. The chairs repeat models typical of English Rococo, although with a taste for ornamentation that indicates a more advanced design. Thomas Chippendale created a new style of luxurious furniture that became very popular, and which perfectly represented the personality of the English Rococo. His designs were also very popular in the mid to late 19th century, giving his name to a new style that was cultivated into the 20th century. This new Chippendale style even gave rise to sub-genres such as Chinese Chippendale, Gothic and Irish Chippendale. The Chippendale style developed from about 1750, and although it began to decline in London around 1765, it was only then that it began to spread outside the capital, and indeed it was to enjoy a great deal of development in outlying centres for the rest of the century. The Chippendale style is composed of rococo features of French origin, Gothic and Chinese elements, mixed either separately, all together or only two of them. It will therefore be a very varied and heterogeneous style, but nevertheless, with the passage of time, in the recreations of the 19th and 20th centuries, it will be clearly identifiable by elements such as the typical openwork chair spades, which we see here. In fact, Chippendale was the creator of the "new pattern" model, a new model of chair that would become the dining chair par excellence, and which is characterised above all by its paddle based on the ribbon backrest.

            Set of eight Chippendale style chairs, England, 19th century. Structure in wood and upholstery in fabric. This piece belongs to the collection of the Hotel Marbella Club. Measurements: 106 x 54 x 48 cm. Set of eight chairs inspired by the work of the English cabinetmaker Thomas Chippendale (1718-1779), the main representative of British Rococo. The chairs repeat models typical of English rococo, although with a taste for ornamentation that indicates that we are dealing with a more advanced design, clearly historicist. Thus, the carving is more profuse than in the 18th century models, and the structural curve is accentuated in such a way that it even affects the waist. On the other hand, we see typical elements of the Chippendale style, such as the openwork and carved shovel, or the cabriole legs. Thomas Chippendale created a new style of luxury furniture that became very popular, and that perfectly represented the personality of the English Rococo. His designs were also very popular in the mid to late nineteenth century, giving name to a new style that was cultivated even during the twentieth century. This new Chippendale style even gave rise to sub-genres such as Chinese Chippendale, Gothic or Irish Chippendale. The Chippendale style developed from about 1750, and although it began to decline in London around 1765, it was precisely then that it began to spread outside the capital, and in fact enjoyed great development in outlying centers for the rest of the century. The Chippendale style is composed of rococo features of French origin, Gothic and Chinese elements, mixed, either separately, all together or only two of them. It will therefore be a very varied and heterogeneous style, but nevertheless with the passage of time, in the recreations of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, it will be clearly identifiable by elements such as the typical openwork blades of the chairs, which we see here. In fact, Chippendale will be the creator of the "new pattern" model, a new model of chair that will become the dining chair par excellence, and which is characterized above all by its paddle based on the ribbon back.
