Hallett, J. B., Berkeley, Glos., cm (183940). [D]

Hallett, William snr, Gt Newport St, Long Acre, London, cm (b. c. 1707d. 1781), Hallett, William jnr, cm (c. 1730d. 1767). In 1938 the late R. W. Symonds published an article on Hallett, Vile and Cobb [Conn., April 1938, pp. 18391] in which he stated that William Hallett was born in July 1707 and died in December 1781. Despite a very extensive search it has not proved possible to establish the source for the July 1707 date. However we know Hallett died on 17 December 1781, and was buried at St Lawrence, Whitchurch on 28 December. [PR; Furn. Hist., 1985] He was 74 years old which seems a credible span for his life. Hallett was born, seemingly, at Crewkerne, Som., to William and his wife. Her maiden name is unknown. William had brothers, George, and (Sir) James, who died in 1733. It was Sir James's son, also James (d. 1723 in France) who was the father of Lettice (or Letitia) who married William Hallett, the cm, as his second wife, in 1756. In other words William married his cousin. However the reader should be spared the full intricacies of an involved story; it is set out, with pedigrees in Furn. Hist., 1985.

What is interesting however about the Crewkerne origin for Hallett is that he could have encountered William Vile whom he was later to support financially at an early age. Vile was born somewhere in Somerset about 170005. An aid to being more precise is denied through the destruction of the many Hallett and Vile wills (Taunton Archdeaconry) in Second World War raids on Exeter. [Listed E. A, Fry (ed.), Taunton Wills, 15371799, British Record Soc., 1912] There is no reason to assume he was the app. of this name put to John Baxter of Sarum, Wilts. in 1728. [S of G, app. index] Indeed, Hallet snr had set up as a cm by 1730, when he took his first app., Ralph Sharrington, for 15, a fee which was slightly lower than the average fee for the period. This 1730 expansion is further support for the presumed year of his birth. Apprenticeship at age 14 in say, 1721, with service of seven years would bring the date to 172829. Furthermore as William Hallet jnr was born by 1730 his father's marriage to Anne , had taken place about the time he ended his years of training. William set up in London at Great Newport St, Long Acre, and his first recorded commission from that address was in 1735. We know of another ten over the same number of years.

By 1747 William, using whatever money his father had left, and the success of his business, bought items at the demolition sale of the 1st Duke of Chandos's great house of Cannons at Edgeware, and then built himself a house on the old centre foundations. He is shown holding a plan of his new house in a conversation-piece by Francis Hayman, RA, c. 1750 (frontispiece, GCM; Hughes-Hallett Coll.). The dates of marriages and births however do not allow us to be certain who the seven figures depicted in the painting are, but they are held to be Hallett's wife, his son, daughter-in-law, grand-daughter, and his father and mother-in-law by his (first) marriage. William Hallet jnr, born about 1730, married in December 1753 his first wife, Hannah Hopkins, the heiress of the successful financier and South Sea stock speculator, John Vulture Hopkins of Brittons, Essex. [Gents Mag., 23, 1753/ 54, 590; London Evening Post, 1518 December 1753] William snr's second marriage to Lettice Hallett had brought over her considerable dowry. From the early 1750s therefore he seems to have been drawn more and more to his property interests, allowing his son to continue his business, however casually, and supporting, albeit as a sleeping partner, the new partnership (175152) of William Vile and John Cobb. Vile was still calling Hallett my Master in 1749 [Furn. Hist., 1975] and was probably his journeyman at this time.

For this theory to be credible it is necessary to assume that William Hallett I made no furniture after the mid 1750s, or in any case after his second marriage in 1756. The theory holds in the evidences accumulated for this Dictionary, and is confirmed, if we can read a little into a letter from Hallett to James Whittle of April 1755. In asking consent for his nephew Samuel Norman to visit Ann Whittle with a view to marriage, Hallett implied that he desisted before in encouragement because Norman was of the same business but as things are now Surcomstanc'd that Objection is removed with regard to myself. [PRO, C 112/194, pt 2] The state of the complex arguments may be summarized as follows: (a) William Hallett snr made furniture from about 1730 with work for Lord Irwin as the first recorded commission (1735) until the early 1750s. (b) He allowed his son, William jnr to carry on running some sort of furniture-making business after he had more or less retired in the early 1750s as the squire of Cannons. The son, due to his wealth, pursued the business with casual inattention. (See also Reynolds, Commissions 1750 below.) (c) William snr (and to a certain extent his son) acted as sleeping partners in the firm of Vile & Cobb. This is attested by payments and receipts in the Hallett, Vile and Cobb bank accounts. [Drummonds Branch, Royal Bank of Scotland] William jnr predeceased his father in 1767 [will PRO, Prob. 11/928, f. 180], and Cannons was left in his father's will [PRO, Prob. 11/1086, f. 25] to the grandson, William (17641842). (d) It is William III, with his first wife Elizabeth Lettice Stephen who are the subjects in Thomas Gainsborough's The Morning Walk (National Gallery, London) 1786. He is not known to have had any furnituremaking connections. (e) Most of the family are buried at St Lawrence, Whitchurch but it has not been established where William snr was married or where his son William jnr was baptized. (f) Confusion with a William Hallot, cm has occurred.

It is important to pursue genealogical probems in order to see what is probable. It is my belief that certain items of furniture with foliate ovals which can be dated to c. 1750 are more likely to be by William Hallett snr than his journeyman William Vile, and that Vile continued the style in later years (e.g. the bookcase c. 1762, for Queen Charlotte. [Burlington, July 1977, p. 485, pls 1718]

Some of the transfer of style may have been done in workshop terms through Samuel Reynolds, and in 1753 Hallett had moved his business from Newport St to St Martin's Lane. He took premises next to Vile & Cobb's. Two years later his name is crossed through in the rate bks [Westminster Ref. Lib.] and Cobb's is inserted. Reynolds had signed for money on Hallett's behalf in 1750, but a year or two later he did so on behalf of Vile & Cobb. I have noted this transfer as early as 1753 (Commissions, below, Canons Ashby).

Within their business the Halletts were also served for a time by Edward Edwards who later established himself as a painter and was appointed a Royal Academician. [H. Walpole, Anecdotes of Painters, 1798] The business took apps from 1730 (Ralph Sharrington); 1732 (Philip Davis); 1733 (Chris. Bingham); 1736 (Joseph Beale); 1742 (James Cole); 1756 (James Stewart). The app. recorded in 1765 was to William Hallot. At some point Hallett snr was in partnership with the successful painter-stainer, Thomas Bromwich. This was about 1745, but as late as 1756 Richard Cambridge coupled their names in his Elegy Written in an Empty Assembley Room In scenes where Hallet's genius has combin'd with Bromwich to amuse and cheer the mind . They both worked at Holkham and Uppark [Furn. Hist., 1965] and both were mentioned by the inveterate letterwriter, Horace Walpole, who had some Gothic furniture by Hallett, and wrote also of his mongrel Chinese furniture.

Finally we must dismiss, I hope with certainty, the reported event of Hallett's bankruptcy in 1769. I have advanced good reasons [Furn. Hist., 1985] to show that this has been an orthographical confusion with the separate cm, William Hallot. The bankruptcy record and Hallot's signature (compared to that of the two Halletts) establishes a separate person, whose work has been, alas, credited to the squire of Cannons. The entry in 1769 for Hallot [Gents Mag., 39, 1769] confirmed as Hallot by title, and signature [London Gazette, 2225 April 1769; PRO, B/6. A 11, p. 55, and Bailey's list of bankrupts, 1773, p. 35] was mistaken as Hallett in Furn. Hist., 1966. The fortunes left by Hallett and his son, and the fact that Hallett jnr at least had predeceased the alleged bankruptcy pushes it further to the name of William Hallot. However, mystery persists, with the Westminster rate bks showing an otherwise unknown Samuel Hallett living in Long Acre in 1753 (when Hallett snr was in St Martin's Lane). He stayed there until at least 1762 the books for 176364 are missing and there are no Hallett entries for 176571. Could he be another son of William snr? Research continues, but is unlikely to upset the pattern established above for Hallett snr's removal from active cabinet-making in the early 1750s.

Hallock, John, Hautboys, Norfolk, cm (1839). [D]

Hallot, William, Long Acre, London, cm, u, dealer and chapman (176273). It might well be thought that William Hallot is a mistake for William Hallett. However a letter written by Hallot, the question of the dates of his activity, comparison of the handwriting and signatures of William Hallett, his son, and William Hallot do seem to point to a separate personality, albeit one who went bankrupt in 1769. This discreditable act was levelled at William Hallett snr (Furn. Hist., XI, 1975, p. 114) on the assumption that unconventional orthography in writing William Hallot [Gents Mag., April 1769, vol. 39, p. 216; repeated as Hallot in The Universal Magazine, April 1769, vol. 44, p. 223] was a mistake for Hallett.

Hallot's only known bill and letter relate to furniture supplied in July 1762 to James Leigh of Stoneleigh, Warks., (Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, Leigh MS, DR 18/8/5, Household Accounts, Box 2, Bundle 2). His letter sent to Leigh from London on 2 August 1763 has many differences to the hand of either William Hallett snr, or his son. I have published the three relevant signatures [Furn. Hist., XXI, 1985] and have been able to look at some twenty examples of the Hallett hand which stays consistent throughout, and consistent in its differences to that of Hallot.

In the case of the bankruptcy we would, by its date (1769), have in any case to exclude confusion with William Hallett jnr (who died in 1767). His father William Hallett snr's bank account [Drummonds Branch, Royal Bank of Scotland] shows a good balance for 1768 the AH ledger for 1769 is not extant. Also Hallett's daughter married in 1779 with a dowry of 70,000 [Gents Mag., 1779, p. 566] Hardly the background of a bankrupt father and impecunious daughter. I believe therefore we must accept William Hallot. He is recorded in that name as taking an app. William Wightwize(?) in 1765, noted as William Hallot Upholder, St Martin's, Westminster, for a premium of 50. To confuse us however the name is not in the rate bks covering Long Acre. The London Gazette, 2225 April 1769, noted Commission of Bankruptcy is awarded against William Hallot of Long Acre Upholder, Cabinet-Maker, Dealer and Chapman. Only the bankruptcy certificates survive for 1769 [PRO, B/6A.11, 176971, p. 55] and not a fuller record, but a Hallot bankruptcy is further noted in Bailey's List of Bankruptcies, 1773, p. 35 [GL] The quest continues for his will, and for more commissions, as enough evidence seems to be available to sketch in an identity separate from the squire of Cannons.

Hasert, Peter, London, cm and looking-glass maker (16921746); Hasert, Peter, cm and looking-glass maker (174651). In June 1692 Hasert, sometimes called Hazard, was fined as a Papist for refusing the oath of fidelity. [Westminster Ref. Lib., Middlx session bk 498, pp. 7679] He was then working as a cabinet-maker in Long Acre. He is next noted in 1720 as working for Robert Harley, first Earl of Oxford (16611724), when his address was at the Hen & Chickens in Great Queen Street, premises occupied by a cm named Davis in 1710. [Heal] Hasert worked for Harley at his London library in Dover St and at Wimpole Hall, Cambs., and continued to work for Edward Harley, second Earl of Oxford (16891741) until at least 1725. In early 1720 Robert Harley employed a cm named Bridgewater, whom Hasert may have succeeded. Hasert's work, as recorded by Harley's librarian, Humfrey Wanley, involved maintenance, the making of pedestals for statues, book-presses, drawers for coins, and the packing of books for transport. Wanley also reveals that in 1724 Hasert gave as an excuse for delay that one of his Men is gone beyond the seas. In July 1722 Wanley received the upholsterer Humfrey Skelton, who wished to inspect the disposition of the presses at Dover St on behalf of Robert Myddleton of Chirk Castle, who was planning to build a library there, and in April 1723 he was visited by Ellis Roberts, the joiner, who came to inspect some of the book presses, having been commissioned to make some more for the Earl of Oxford; on both occasions works by Hasert may have served as potential models. On 31 August 1724 Hasert, described as cabinet and looking-glass maker (Wanley also hints at the latter activity), insured his goods and merchandize for 200 and on 31 October his goods, merchandize and dwelling house for 800. [GL, Sun MS vol. 13] In 1722 and 1725 Hasert worked for Rebecca Tufnell of Langleys; in 1726 he was a supplier to Tredegar House, Mons.; in 172729 he worked for Sir William Monson and Lord Monson; and in 1735 for Lady Fortescue, born a Huddleston and therefore a recusant. The next reference [Heal] is to Hasert's involvement, with other tradesmen, in an elaborate hoax played on Hulton the printseller in Pall Mall in 1744. This may, however, refer to his future successor of the same name, as Hasert must have been old for jokes by then, and died in early July 1746 in Paris on his intended journey for Italy: he was then described as a very eminent Cabinet Maker near Lincoln's Inn Fields. [General Advertiser, 16 July 1746] This absence abroad so soon after 1745 raises the suspicion that Hasert may have been not only a Papist, but also a Jacobite. His business came to an end in 1751 when the following announcement appeared in the London Evening Post, 1316 April: To be sold by Hand, at the Hen & Chickens in Great Queen Street, near Lincoln's Inn Fields, on Thursday the 18th instant, and the following Days, The general Stock in Trade of Mr Peter Hasert, Cabinet and Looking Glass Maker; also the Materials for grinding and silvering Looking Glass, and the Benches and Tools for Cabinet-makers. All will be sold cheap, he leaving off Trade. The Household Goods will also be sold.

Haupt, Georg, resident in London 1767 or 176869, cm (b. 1741d. 1784). Georg Haupt was born in Stockholm on 10 August 1741. His father, Elias Haupt, was a master cm whose position in the Cabinet-Makers Guild appears to have entitled his son to preferential treatment. The young man was app. at thirteen, some nine months before he was eligible, to a leading Swedish cm, Johan Conrad Eckstein. His apprentice ship lasted for five years only, from 175459 after which he was given temporary work with Eckstein's uncle, Friedrich Eckstein, Master of the Cabinet-Makers Guild.
The significant years of his career, in so far as his work in London is concerned, were those he spent as a journeyman. His first visit was to Germany in 1760. Then, together with his future brother-in-law, Christopher Fuhrlohg he set off in 1762 to Amsterdam, moving on in 1764 to Paris. It is not known for whom the two young men worked in Amsterdam but evidence suggests that they were employed in Paris in the workshop of Simon Oeben, brother of Jean-Franois. The basis for this suggestion is the existence of a bureau plat, signed by Haupt. [Institut Gographique National, Paris] The inscription on the piece in red chalk reads: George Haupt Suedois a fait cet bureau a Chanteloup 1767. The desk bears the inventory mark of the Chteau de Chanteloup, country seat of the Duc de Choiseul, Simon Oeben's foremost patron. It is of solid mahogany and, for such an early date, severely Neo-classical in style. A writing desk and filing cabinet [Muse des Beaux-Arts, Tours] also bears the inventory marks of the Chteau de Chanteloup. These pieces, decorated with marquetry in a geometrical design, have been attributed to Simon Oeben. Svend Eriksen has expressed the view, however, that their quality is not such as to justify an attribution to the French master and that they may, more probably, have been made by the young journeyman, Georg Haupt, while he was working at Chateloup in 176667. A study of the signed bureau plat and the writing desk and filing cabinet [illus. Svend Eriksen, op. cit., below] throws light on the experience of the newly emerging Neo-classical style that Haupt had gained in Paris.
Meanwhile, in the Summer of 1766, Haupt's nephew, the painter Elias Martin, had arrived in Paris to join his two compatriots. Christopher Fuhrlohg was the first to move on to London. Elias Martin and Haupt followed either at the end of 1767 or early in 1768. It may have been in Paris or after their arrival in London that Martin painted a portrait of his uncle, now in the possession of the Nodiska Museet, Stockholm. It shows the young man, in lace cravat and blue silk waistcoat, seated casually at a carved and gilt table with an open book and a pair of compasses in his hands. [illus. Lagerquist, op. cit.]
There were two points of contact of which Haupt made use on his arrival in London. The first was the Swedish Church where the young cm received communion, according to the church records, on 7 February 1768. The second was the architect, William Chambers, who had been born in Sweden and is known to have kept closely in touch with Swedish immigrants and visitors to England. He was also on good terms with the Swedish Court and subsequently, in 1772, was awarded a Knighthood in the Order of the Polar Star. Haupt's relationship with Chambers is documented by the only piece of furniture (now in the V & A) definitely known to have been made by him while he was in England. This is a small square satinwood table with one drawer, inlaid with laurel festoons, the top consisting of nine specimen plaques of coloured marbles. It is inscribed beneath in ink Cette table a t Command et Dessin par Mr. Chambers Premier Architect de Sa Majest Britannique et execut par son trs humble Serviteur George Haupt Suedois, Londres le 4 Fevrier 1769. [illus. Hayward and Kirkham]
Haupt may have set up his own workshop in London but there is no evidence to support this view. There is, however, evidence that Christopher Fuhrlohg was employed for a limited period by John Linnell at his Berkeley Sq. workshop until he eventually set up on his own at 24 Tottenham Ct Rd. There are grounds for suggesting that Haupt may have joined his friend in working for John Linnell for the short time which he spent in England. Fuhrlohg's connection with John Linnell is established elsewhere. This connection very probably originated through William Chambers since Chambers and the Linnell firm had both been employed by the Child family at Osterley Park, Middlx. When Fuhrlohg, and then Haupt, arrived in England, John Linnell was engaged upon furnishing the Library at Osterley Park. Of the pieces provided and still in the Library, the two bureaux plats are essentially French in character. The large pedestal desk is richly inlaid with laurel wreaths, heavy oak-leaf swags and urns with stiff, angular handles. All these motifs can be paralleled in Haupt's work executed in Sweden after his return to his own country. [Lagerquist, op. cit.] They were certainly not then part of the repertoire of marquetry ornament used by John Linnell. One further piece supplied to Osterley at the same time is even more relevant in pointing to Haupt's authorship: the fallfront medal cabinet made for Robert Child and still in the possession of Lord Jersey, descendant of the family. [illus. Hayward and Kirkham] This is inlaid with motifs such as diaper patterns, medallions with heavy swags looped and suspended into heart-shaped surrounds and urns set on pedestals with high, angular handles. These features occur in Haupt's work and, in particular, on a writing-table and filing cabinet made by Haupt for the King of Sweden in 1770. [The Royal Palace, Stockholm, illus. Hayward and Kirkham] There are hardly such telling parallels between the Osterley pieces and the known pieces made subsequently by Fuhrlohg in England although both Swedish cm may have been involved. Their shared experiences came to an end when Haupt was informed by the Swedish envoy, Gustav Adam von Nolcken on 1 August 1769 of his appointment in Sweden as Ebeniste du Roi. His work in England must have been outstanding to warrant such an appointment. The Osterley pieces are certainly of the highest quality and if, indeed, they were his work, they would surely have demonstrated his skill. [M. Lagerquist et M.

The card is framed in the Rococo manner with figures of Chinamen and engravings of a chair and cabinet on stand in the Chippendale style. Patronage was invited from Gentlemen, Merchants and Others. In 1754 Henshaw subscribed to Chippendale's Director. Henshaw took out licences to employ non-freemen in 175758 and 177072. These licences covered the employment of three or four men only on a short-term basis. He took as app. in 1759 Richard Brocas at a premium of 31 10s and William Goldsmith at 10 10s. In 1761 John White was also taken as app. at a premium of 40. By 1763 his premises in St Paul's Churchyard had been numbered 18 and by 1770 he had taken a partner, Henry Kettle, who was to continue the business alone after c. 1773.

Hepplewhite, George, Redcross St, Cripplegate, London, cm (d. 1786). A very elusive figure recorded in only one trade directory [Lowndes, 1786] as Kepplewhite & Son (sic), cm of 48 Redcross St. At Christmas 1785 George Applewhite (sic) snr and jnr took out a Sun Insurance policy on the premises of which utensils and stock accounted for 500. [GL, Sun MS vol. 327, p. 32] Another son John living at the same address subscribed to George Richardson's Treatise on the Five Orders of Architecture, 1787. [Liverpool RO, 920 GKE/2/20] The father died intestate and administration was granted on 27 June 1786 to his widow, Alice; accounts were passed in December and again in June 1787 showing that his estate was worth less than 600. [PRO, Prob. 6/162, p. 300] A notice in the Public Ledger, 10 October 1786 announced that the valuable stock in trade and household furniture of Mr Hepplewhite, cabinet manufacturer deceased were to be sold by auction. Two years after his death I. & J. Taylor published a folio volume of furniture designs, The Cabinet-maker and Upholsterer's Guide, from drawings by A Hepplewhite & Co., Cabinet-Maker, suggesting that his widow continued the business. Advertisements for this book in the Lincoln, Rutland and Stamford Mercury, 18 January 1788 and Williamson's Liverpool Advertiser, 18 February 1788 show that it cost 2 2s and was promoted by subscription. The Guide was reprinted with one additional plate and minor alterations in 1789, while a third improved edition appeared in 1794 containing an extra plate and a free revision of the designs for chairs. Six engravings in The Cabinet-Makers London Book of Prices, 1793, are signed Hepplewhite or Heppelwhite.

The note to plate X states that a hall chair has been executed with good effect for His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, but no bills for furniture supplied by the firm have ever been traced. Accordingly, Hepplewhite's fame rests entirely on the pattern book issued by his widow; none of the plates are signed so even his authorship of the designs is open to doubt. However, the Guide provides a valuable record of respectable household furniture dating from the mid 1780s which, in the words of the preface seeks to unite elegance and utility, and blend the useful with the agreeable; the writer further states we designedly followed the latest and most prevailing fashions. In 1791 Sheraton criticized Hepplewhite's designs, particularly the chairs, observing they have already caught the decline, a jibe which explains the revisions to the 1794 edition. There is no evidence for the tradition that Hepplewhite was app. to Gillows, apart from the rather striking resemblance of some plates in the Guide to certain drawings in their Estimate Sketch Books; indeed they informed a customer on 27 March 1801 We have not Hebblethwaite's Publication and are at a loss to know the form of the Brackets you approve of.

Herv, Franois, Johns (or John) St, London, cm and chairmaker (178196). While Franois Herv is known to have worked for the most fashionable and fastidious patrons, such as the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Devonshire and Earl Spencer, he still remains a shadowy figure. His name is virtually absent from the London directories, but two entries of 1790 and 1793 record that an F. Herve chairmaker worked at 32 Johns St, off Tottenham Ct Rd. He had earlier been in partnership with John Meschain of the same address. Both names appear on a brass tablet found upon a folding library table-cum-steps, of their invention (Fig. 43). Meschain is recorded from at least 1769 as a cabriole chairmaker, and in 1770 he took app. named Gabriel Laurent La Porte, presumably also of French extraction. [Boyd's index to IR app. reg., 4, p. 682] In January 1769 he supplied 18 French Cabriolets at 1 7s each to Shelburne House, Berkeley Sq., London. [Bowood MS] In 1777 John Meschain, cabinet and chairmaker took out an insurance policy for 600 on premises at 32 St John St, his utensils and stock being covered for 350. In 1781 Meschain was rated upon a 30 rental a higher figure than for most others in the street, but was superseded there by Herv from 1781 until at least 1791. He had moved to 64 John St by 1796, presumably in larger premises across the street (now the middle part of Whitfield St) and was well placed in a still fashionably developing part of London. Whether Francis Herv fell on harder times is uncertain, but that name is recorded in Holden's 1808 directory as a turner and brushmaker in Kingsgate St, Theobald Rd. In 1782 the John St premises were insured by Catherine Mortel, spinster, with 200 attributable to the workshop and 500 to Herv's utensils and stock. [GL, Sun MS vol. 298, p. 385]

Herv's style is now best represented by the documented pieces at Chatsworth where it can be seen as a light, elegant and adroit mixture of English and French detail. Thus the back legs of his chairs are splayed in the English manner, while some of his carved detail, for example the interlocked Cscrolls or the undulating shaping of his chair backs is wholly French, and a very conservative survival of the Rococo motifs of the 1750s. Most extant Herv pieces were either painted to harmonize with the soft furnishings elsewhere in the rooms concerned or were gilded. In directory entries Herv described himself as a cabriole chairmaker. Many of his chairs have caned backs or seats, and, to reduce costs, he sometimes employed composition ornaments in substitution for handcarving. His output included beside seat furniture, pier tables, state beds and chandeliers. Herv worked in conjunction with well-known architects such as John Carr at Chatsworth (for the Duke of Devonshire), and perhaps at Welbeck (for Devonshire's brother-in-law, the Duke of Portland) with James Wyatt; at Heveningham (for either Sir Gerard Vanneck, or his brother, later created the 1st Lord Huntingfield) and with Henry Holland at Althorp for Earl Spencer; and at Carlton House for George, Prince of Wales. There is no firm evidence that Herv was dependent upon any of those architects for furniture designs though the proportions of several of his larger pieces were determined by the spaces allotted for them within those architects designs. Herv was also linked with his fellow Frenchmen, such as Guillaume Gaubert at both Chatsworth and Carlton House. The style of his documented pieces embodies certain distinctive features, among them the stepping down of the seat rails at their junction with the legs, a sensible constructional device that retained the slender elegance of the seat rails while providing a stronger joint at the leg junctions. The top-most part of the leg is frequently a quadrant in plan, sometimes overlaid with a patera or a half patera of radiating petals or foliage. The leg below the seat frame often has a turned necking band deeper than that found upon wholly English chairs, and the flutes of the legs are sometimes further enriched with reeding or with the carved chandelles that are also French in inspiration.

[GL, Upholders Co. records] Appears to have succeeded Robert Hodson, and acted as head of the firm of Hodson's, looking-glass and cabinet warehouse in Frith St, Soho, from 1723 until as late as 1786. An earlier address for John Hodson, in Bedford St, St Paul's, Covent Gdn, is given in 1718, when he insured goods and merchandise on 4 November with the Sun Co. A note added to the policy on 12 October 1723 stated that he had moved to The Fleece, Frith St, St Ann's. John Hodson took out another policy on 12 December 1730 for 1,400 on household goods and stock in trade in workshops adjoining the Slade House, next to his own house. [GL, Sun MS vol. 8, ref. 12498; vol. 33, ref. 52401] The firm appears to have been headed firstly by Robert Hodson, who wrote to the Earl of Radnor in September 1725 concerning a compting bureau supplied to Longford Castle. [V&A archives] Later bills from Hodsons were generally submitted by John, and from 1730 86 often have the same heading which shows furniture in the style of the 1730s40s: elaborately carved pier and dressing tables, an elbow chair, tripod reading desk, japanned cabinet on stand, kettle table, and looking-glass with carved masks and flanking candle holders. The heading bears the inscription: At Hodsons Looking Glass and Cabinet Warehouse in Frith Street, Soho, is ready made great variety of all sorts of Furniture in the neatest and most Fashionable manner, by choice and experienced Workmen employ'd in his own house. By which means Customers may better depend on the goodness of ye materials and duration of the Work: There are also many well contriV&Apos;d Machines for weak and Sickly people, all performd at moderate prizes, and in the utmost perfection. NB. Coach, Chair, and Sash Glasses are sold, at the very lowest prizes. [Banks Coll., BM; C. Life, 9 June 1966, p. 1462; 26 January 1967, p. 184] The earliest known bill with this heading was submitted to Robert Packer, Lord of Shellingford Manor, on 18 March 1730, and was for a pillar and claw table, dressing glass, walnut corner cupboard, and sconces. [Berks. RO, Hartley Russell MS D/EHy A2/4 and 36] In April 1732 John Hodson charged a Mr Stannix 4 12s for a table and various repairs. [Chetham Lib., Manchester, Halliwell-Phillipps Coll. of Broadsides, no. 1242] In 1736 he supplied mahogany tables costing 44 to Holkham Hall, Norfolk. [V&A archives] He sent two accounts to Lord Monson dated 1735 and 1741 [Lincoln RO, Monson papers]; and one to the Duke of Atholl of Blair Castle, Tayside, dated January 1738, amounting to 150 1s 6d. Items he supplied include a tripod table, mahogany claw table with galleried top, a fine carved and painted side table and a wine cooler. It may be possible to identify furniture from this commission with that still at Blair Castle. [Conn., April 1963, pp. 22330; G. Bernard Hughes, Mahogany Claw Tables, C. Life, 17 March 1955, illus.; 18 November 1949; Heal] The usual heading occurred on a bill sent by Hodsons to Sir Herbert Pakington of Westwood Park, Worcs., dated 2 May 1733, for a Large Oblong mohogeney dining Table with 2 flapps to hold 12 people, costing 3 10s. [Worcs. RO, 2309705: 38017] A bill headed as before was submitted to Coll. Kennedy for items supplied to Dalquharran, 173536, costing a total of 14 6s. This included 3 18s for 6 Virginia walnutt Chairs on 3 October 1735; and 2 12s 6d for a mohogoney Armd Chair on brass Castor on 18 September 1736, all with seats Stuft and covered with black Leather. On 24 December 1736 Hodsons charged for transporting looking-glasses from Chelsea to London; and on 14 February 173637, for packing furniture including a pillar and claw table, a mahogeney Elbow Chair, 6 Yoak back chairs, and 18 Walnut Chairs, and transporting them from Frith St to Scotland Yd, & Expences it being parliament time, and paying a man for going to put the Goods on board the ship. Hodson also cleaned and repaired furniture, beds, bedding and window curtains. [V&A archives] Another extant bill with the usual Hodson heading was sent to William Clayton in December 1744, totalling 17 8s, including 4 4s for a neat wainscott Cloaths Press; 10 10s for 10 Neat mohog. Chairs Stuft and covered with black Spanish leather studed with brass nails; and two elbow chairs with quilted leather cushions. The bill to Clayton was receipted by P. Smagget for Hodson & Self. [Heal Coll., BM] Bills with the usual heading were sent from Hodson & Co. to the Duke of Gordon in 1745. The first, dated 28 March 1745 is for 2 Neat Redwood Standishes with Drawers & Covers, for 1 6s. Another, dated and receipted by P. Smagget on 3 May 1745, was for 2 Neat Saxogotha Standishes with Drawers & Covers, costing the same. On 1 June 1745 two further standishes were bought, one of neat alliganxant, with silver handle and hinges; and both with cut glass bottles mounted with silver, totalling 5 10s.

In 1718 he supplied chairs and stools for the Duke of Montrose's London house in Bond St; and a bill for 10 Walnut chairs with Matted Seats, costing 10, receipted in 1724, was probably also for the Duke of Montrose.

Hunt, Philip, the Looking Glass & Cabinet, East end St Paul's Churchyard, London, u and cm, (c. 1690). His trade card takes an unusual form. It illustrates a marquetry looking-glass of late 17th-century date bearing the interlaced cypher of William III and Mary II supported by a lion and unicorn in the arched cresting. The square wooden cushion moulded frame is decorated with floral marquetry. The mirror plate reflects a marquetry cabinet on stand with twist turned legs of similar date. The text beneath indicates the nature of Philip Hunt's trade at this period. He offers Cabenetts, Looking Glasses, Tables and stanns, Seretors, Chests of Drawers, And Curious inlaid Figures for any works. This maker has also been identified with the Mr Hurt or Hunt who in 1720 was involved in the production of the elaborate state bed for John Mellor for his recently acquired house, Erddig, North Wales. Philip Hunt was however clearly a cm and it was an u who was involved in this bed. The long period of about thirty years that separate this commission and the trade card throw further doubt on this attribution. A much more likely craftsman is John Hutt, an u trading in St Paul's Churchyard 171029. [Heal, GCM; Nat. Trust guide to Erddig] B.A.

[KCL, Coll. I, f58] John Hutt of The Three Pillars insured his house, goods and merchandise on 17 November 1719. [GL, Sun MS vol. 10, ref. 15779] Shortly before 1821 John Hutt and William Langmore, upholder in Cornhill, took an inventory of the goods of Sir John Blunt of Birchin Lane and Stratford, West Ham, a Director of the South Sea Co., and supplied him with goods to the value of 370. He charged 66 6s for chimney glasses and sconces at Stratford.

John Hutt was probably the Mr Hurt or Hunt, who in 1720 was involved in the production of the elaborate state bed for John Mellor for his recently acquired house, Erddig, Clwyd, N. Wales. Simon Yorke, his nephew, wrote from London on 17 April 1720 regarding this bed. He had attempted to call on Hunt but found him absent and had to be content with the assurances of his wife that the bed would be sent on Monday next. The delay was blamed on the wait for the gilding and carving to be completed. This had been sub-contracted possibly to John Belchier whose workshop was near at hand and had supplied much other furniture to Erddig. It has been suggested previously that the craftsman involved was Philip Hunt of The Looking Glass & Cabinet, East end St Paul's Churchyard, but he appears to have been a cm, not an u, and there is no evidence that he was trading as late as 1720. [Nat. Trust guide to Erddig] John was succeeded in St Paul's Churchyard by Richard Hutt. Named in contemporary newspapers. [Heal; Hilton Price, Signs of Old London; GCM]
