Footnotes

  • Charles Sawyer is recorded as a cabinet-maker and upholsterer, trading at High Street, Southwold, Suffolk between the dates of 1824 and 1840 the year of his death. His only documented surviving bill to date is for the sum of £11 9s 6d in respect of 'cabinet goods' supplied to Charles Blois of Cockfield Hall, Yoxford Suffolk (see Geoffrey Beard and Christopher Gilbert eds., The Dictionary of English Furniture Makers 1660-1840, 1996, p. 786).

Saleroom notices

  • Please note the above description should read 'attributed to Charles Sawyer'. The cabinet is sold with photographs of the signature of Charles Sawyer which were provided by the late vendor. It appears the signature came to light during restoration but we have not been able to locate the signature suggesting that it is signed on part of the construction which is not normally exposed.
