These Grecian-scrolled library bergeres have incised 'tablet' rails and truss-pillared arms with volutes enriched with paterae en suite with the legs.

They formed part of a set of four mahogany caned Library chairs supplied in 1814 for George Home's Library at Paxton House, Berwickshire by William Trotter of Prices Street, Edinburgh, at a cost of £7.70 each. The current set has one modern chair.
