Photographs of sideboards and tables designed by Gimson

Scope and Content

Black and white photographs, mounted on card, of tables and sideboards designed by Ernest Gimson. There are 22 photographs of tables of varying styles, including small side tables, large long dining tables, fold-away tables, circular and square tables. There are 16 photographs of sideboards and dressers, 1 photograph of a metal guard rail, 1 photograph of a 'what-not' or shelves, and 2 photographs of wall-mounted hanging shelves. 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.
