Tables

Description

This file consists of 13 sketches rendered in pencil. Drawings depict tables 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; however, the vast majority of the drawings are very rough sketches. Some of the sketches are quite small; some are also in fragile condition. Types of tables shown include trestle tables, nesting tables, card tables, pedestal tables and writing tables. No customer names are noted. Digital images of a selection of sketches from the file are attached to this record. Also included is a printed page showing three tables by another manufacturer, SKB.
