Other Sketches

Description

This file consists of 26 sketches rendered in pencil, fourteen of which are fragments of other drawings. One black-and-white photograph of chairs is also included. Drawings depict a variety of items 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 chairs, tables, desks, night tables, boxes, twin beds, cheval glasses, pedestals, bureaus with mirrors, and a combination side chair/stepladder. No customer names are noted. Digital images of a selection of items from the file are attached to this record.
