The catalogue for our exhibition Departure of the 6th.
The catalogue has 72 items of campaign furniture and personal travel items, along with associated artwork.
Items that are particularly of note are the miniature Salesman's Sample Campaign Table and the Davenport. The miniature table is an exceptionally rare item and an exciting find for us. The Davenport is a very fine piece of furniture and to think that Queen Charlotte may have sat at it in Frogmore House adds to its interest.
A number of makers are represented and we are lucky to be able to show 2 walnut chests by Hill & Millard, one with a secretaire and one without. The chest with the secret drawers is also worth pointing out. The histories of Carters, R.W. Forsyth Ltd and Parkin & Gotto are also noted but a number of other makers are also represented.
The catalogue is fully printed in colour and the majority of items have more than one photo to illustrate it.
