AES 15.
Armchair designed by E W Godwin.
Made by Smee. See The Secular Furniture of E W Godwin by Susan Weber Soros page 131.
This rather damaged armchair has a Smee label which would further prove that these chairs are infact designed by Godwin as we know he designed for James Peddle and this design was Patented by Peddle in 1881, therefore he could have possibly sold the same design to each company or Smee made them under licence to James Peddle.

AES 18.
3 chairs design attributed to Edward William Godwin (1833-86) and made by James Peddle. A well designed chair every shaped back slat is doweled at the top with 2 dowels to each main back support, the half moon detailing at the bottom of the head rail, which are solid on these versions, refined turned and fluted legs and those pure Godwin kick out back legs which are positioned just so to deflect the mass weight of the upper body and very comfortable indeed. A chair with identical characteristics was registered by James Peddle in March 1881 and I have an armchair from the same design which has a Smee label still attached and we know he also did designs for Smee so it almost proves without doubt that these chairs were designed by him.
Made by James Peddle or Smee. See The Secular Furniture of E W Godwin by Susan Weber Soros page 131.

The exaggerated rake to the back legs are typical of his work. Circa 1870's.

Two Morris and Co adjustable ebonised armchair's designed in 1866 with arched arms and legs united by refined bobbin turnings with adjustable back and bobbin turned stretchers on brass and ceramic castors re-upholstered in original Morris and Co double woven Bird fabric. These elegant timeless recliners were based on a design from an earlier traditional prototype found by George Warrington Taylor (Morris and Co's business manager) in the workshop of an old carpenter named Ephraim Colman in Hurstmonceaux, Sussex, in 1866. He drew a sketch and wrote description of the chair and sent it to Philip Webb and these two examples are the exact models that were adapted by Phillip Webb for production by Morris and Co. So rare to find 1, a dream to find 2. An icon of the 20th Century.
