A pair of Armchairs designed by Ernest Gimson and made by Edward Gardener.
Circa 1905.
£SOLD.
Ernest Gimson revived this ancient village craft of making ash and oak chairs with rush seats to the true traditions of The Arts and Crafts Movement. Philip Clissett was a very skilled chair maker working at Bosbury in Herefordshire since 1838 and Gimson took lessons from him in 1890. Gimson's workshops were at Daneway in Gloucestershire and he inspired and taught Edward Gardiner this old art of chair making. Edward Gardiner later moved to Warwickshire where he worked until he died in 1958.

Cotswold SOLD 52.
A Walnut corner cupboard the original design by Ernest Gimson and Sidney Barnsley. Although this is superb quality I feel it is not quite up to the quality that Gimson and Barnsley were producing at the turn of the century and therefore later somewhere before the 1920's. There is a photograph of an oak version on page 99, fig 64 of 'Gimson and the Barnsleys' by Mary Greensted 1980, (it is situated behind the white ladder back chair images). For a later rendition which is in Lotherton Hall. See also Gilbert, Christopher 'Furniture at Temple Newsam House and Lotherton Hall', vol I, London 1978, p. 59, no. 41, illustrated with the design sketch. This version of 1903 is in oak and was purchased by Henry H. Peach, Dryad Works, Leicester in 1915.
Height 78 1/2" 200cm, Depth from back along each side 22" 55cm, Width 39" 98cm.

A superb quality chunky Arts and Crafts Oak eight-seat 'Tretower' refectory dining table designed by Paul Matt who was the key figure in the design and manufacture of Brynmawr Furniture, son of a German cabinet maker (who had made furniture to the designs of Charles Rennie Mackintosh), Matt served his apprenticeship with his father. He arrived in Brynmawr in 1929, keen to help in the Quaker project however he could. He set up the furniture workshop early in 1930. What is revealed by his designs for Brynmawr furniture is his knowledge of The Arts and Crafts movement, and continental Modernism, combined with a very practical approach to the materials, facilities and labour available. This is a pure hand craftsman built table.
