Henry Samuel, the Oxford Street based dealer in works of art (fl.1881 – 1913) regularly name-stamped his stock and seems to have specialised in copies of high quality copies of 18th century furniture, as well as in period furniture. See C.Gilbert,Pictorial Dictionary of Marked London Furniture, 1700 – 1840, Leeds, 1996, p.395, pl.780 for an 18th century octagonal partners desk, a similar late 19th century copy of this desk bearing the stamp of H.Samuel was sold Christie’s, London, 21 November, 2006, lot 457. Other pieces bearing the H.Samuel stamp include a bookcase in the manner of George Brookshaw, sold Christie’s London, 6 March 2008, lot 104 and a George I leather covered chest on stand, sold Sotheby’s London, 3 May 2003, lot 13.
