Description

This file consists of 15 sketches rendered in pencil. Drawings depict seating furniture 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. Types of furnishings shown include sofas, settles, chaise longues and armchairs. No customer names are noted. Digital images of a selection of sketches from the file are attached to this record.
