So how did such a great amount of Furniture get made. other makers of that day.
Note?There were many serious competitors in the 1750s to Chippendale, and we might start here with William Hallett, and his later partners William Vile and John Cobb. None of them subscribed to the Director, so as to avoid,they had copied (as many of lesser status did) its attractive designs. They had sufficient ability to survive by their own merits. senior partner, William Hallett (1707-81) had been successful with his accomplished with mahogany furniture, and by an advantageous marriage to an heiress had no need, . William Vile trained under Hallett, and in 1751, together with a Norfolk-born upholsterer, John Cobb, he set up in partnership near to Chippendale in St. Martin's Lane. Hallett acted as their financial backer and continued to support them for the rest of their lives. He outlived Vile, who died in 1767,and Cobb, died in 1778. Examples of oval beads on furniture attributed to Vile in the early 1750s show the hazards of crediting authorship without documentation. The mahogany table press made by Benjamin Goodison for the Earl of Leicester at Holkham in 1751 also has applied ovals on each side. There are indications that the freelance carver Sefferin Alken supplied them to several makers, including Vile. But the latter does seem to have made some furniture.
There were other able contenders for a patron's purse and interest-in particular, Note: William and John Linnell, both: William Inca and John Mayhews Rivals.
