One-off sideboard designed by Dick Russell
Have you seen this sideboard? Dick Russell designed it as a one-off piece for the Arts & Crafts Exhibition show held at the Royal Academy in 1938. Executed by A. H. Allaway the carcass and legs of the sideboard are made from pearwood with the doors constructed from ebony with inlaid with mutton bones. This design echoes a tea caddy made by Ernest Gimson as a family piece some eighteen years earlier.
Its current whereabouts is a mystery. Please contact the museum if you can help with its location.
