This photograph from The Tatler’s series “Artists in their Studios” shows him in 1902 – and right in the centre of this image is one of Clissett’s lowback chairs. In about 1910, Frampton moved into a new house which featured in an article in The Studio in that year, and many of the rooms were illustrated, including his new studio (below). The chair can be seen just to the right of the stove.
These photographs provide just a little more support for Dugald MacColl’s assertion that Clissett’s chairs, once they were on view at the Art Workers Guild “passed … into many houses”.
