Side Chairs

CC011.004.006 (RS243415)

Description

This file consists of 40 sketches rendered in pencil and one in watercolor and pencil. Drawings depict side chairs manufactured by A. H. Davenport Co., Irving and Casson, or their successor Irving and Casson - A H. Davenport Co. A few drawings are more developed and contain information such as measurements; however, the vast majority of the drawings are very rough sketches. Some of the sketches are quite small; some are also in fragile condition. No customer names are noted. Digital images of a selection of sketches from the file are attached to this record.
