The first was given to George IV in 1821 at Carlton House, and is now at Windsor Castle. The second was for Children's own use. It was given by him to the Duke of Wellington in 1837, and now at Apsley House, London. A third armchair was commissioned by the Duke of Rutland, and is at Belvoir Castle. The Fitzwilliam's chair is close in design to the chair at Apsley House.
