ARGYLE SUITE WITH HUNTERIAN SIDEBOARD
This image of an Argyle suite it situ in the customer’s home New York, USA, features six Argyle Chairs and a Mains Street Table(Detail of the heart shaped carvings on the side rails of the table can be seen here.)
To the right hand side of the picture you can see a Hunterian Sideboard. The Sideboard was a major undertaking which involved several visits to the Hunterian Museum to survey and make sketches of the original. From these on site sketches I went on to produce detailed scale drawings prior to starting production. The Brass hinge plates and escutcheons were handmade by fellow craftsman, and good friend Laurie Kayser.
Further information on the Hunterian Sideboard can be found here.
You recently made me an Ingram high back chair which was for my wife’s 60th birthday. I would just like to say how pleased I am with it. Not only are we pleased with the chair, but we are both impressed with your skills as a craftsman. Once again thanks for a great job, and thanks for making her birthday so special.
