From the Pearse Collection: photograph depicting a dining room. In the centre, the mid 18th century gateleg table with cabriole legs is surrounded by chairs with unusual backs - these resemble the Tulbagh type, but have Queen Anne characteristics. Above the cabinet on stand with barley sugar turned legs hang a landscape painting and two 17th century portraits. To the right is an armoire with a flat cornice and bun feet. Photograph probably considered for prof. Geoffrey Pearse's book "Eighteenth Century Furniture in South Africa", but never included.
