Two armchair seat covers(do not match). One with large floral motifs around a central medallion with a rooster, two swans below. The other with a scrolling background and border, two caryatids supporting a central medallion possibly depicting a fable(shipwrecked man, animal?). The other medallion shows a cockerel. These appear to be part of the Russell group of chair covers. See 1962.50.2, 1962.50.2a, 1962.51.2b etc.
