Photographs of chairs designed by Gimson

Scope and Content

42 black and white photographs, mounted on card, showing chairs designed by Ernest Gimson. These include rush seated chairs and leather cushioned chairs, rocking chairs, a baby's high chair, and benches. The photographs are stamped with the studio mark of Dennis Moss, Cirencester. According to the "Ernest Gimson and the Arts and Crafts Movement in Leicester" website, Gimson never made a catalogue or advertised with a leaflet. Instead he had these photographs taken to be sent to potential clients, with instructions for their return.
