The Salute - Exhibition
6th May 2020 - 27th May 2020
The Salute will be an online exhibition due to the Covid-19 lockdown.
wonderful panorama watercolour, partilally illustated here and used to
both our front and back covers of the catalogue, gives us our title
for this exhibition. In
many ways the 32 catalogues we have produced have all been a salute to
innovation of the designers of the campaign furniture we have featured
officers who thought it necessary to take all that you needed to make
in the army as comfortable as possible.
This exhibition features a good number of campaign chests many of which are secretaires and some of which are by known makers such as S.W. Silver and Gregory Kane. The show also features some unusual tables both large and small, some interesting kit bag locks and a variety of different travel inkwells. We also seemed to have gathered a few pieces relating to the navy or ship use.
We have enjoyed finding and
researching this collection and hope that you will also enjoy it.
