An oak dining room suite, by Stanley Webb Davies

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: An oak dining room suite, by Stanley Webb Davies of Windermere (1894-1978), comprising: a dining table, with a rectangular top, over trestle ends united with a stretcher, inscribed with monogram and dated 1952, and with craftsman's monogram, 88cm wide 182.5cm long 71cm high, six chairs, with solid back splats and channelled uprights, with drop-in seats, worn, each carved with 'SWD' monogram and dated 1952, and with craftsman's monogram, a sideboard, with an arrangement of two drawers, one with a sliding cutlery tray, over a pair of panelled cupboards, with visible tenon joints, carved with monogram and dated 1952, 122cm wide 45cm deep 77cm high, and a trolley, with two tiers and chip carved supports, carved with monogram and dated 1951, 48cm wide 73cm long 60.5cm high (9) Stanley Webb Davies (1894-1978) was born into a wealthy mill-owning family in Lancashire and was educated at Bootham, a Quaker School in York and then studied history at Oxford. During the First World War, he was a member of the 'Old Vics' and built huts for refugees, which in turn developed his love of woodwork. After the war, he worked for Romney Green at his workshop in Christchurch, Hampshire. In 1926, with help from his father, he built his workshop, which he called Gatesbield, which was designed by the architect Kenneth Cross. He worked there for the rest of his life and adhered to the Arts and Crafts Movement's ideals of the craftsman-maker versus machine-production. He designed and made domestic and ecclesiastical furniture, presentation pieces, and items for boardrooms and offices. Most of his work was made to commission. His workshop closed on his retirement in 1961. The craftsman's monogram on the sideboard is for James Cleasby Dent (1920-2003) who was born into a farming family in Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria. Interested in woodwork from an early age, he started working with Stanley Webb Davies as a fee-paying student, later becoming an apprentice and then a fully qualified craftsman. He worked at the Gatesbield workshop in Windermere until 1954, leaving to set up his own in Ravenstondale near Kirkby Stephen. The craftsman's monogram on the table and the hostess trolley is for Richard Cloudsdale (1908-1991). The chairs are monogrammed for Sidney Allan Johnston, who was Davies' last apprentice, joining in 1947 at the age of 15.
