1981

A superb example of an Oak Spinning Chair from the Sutton-under-Whitestonecliffe workshop of Colin 'Beaverman Almack,   one of a small number made in 1981 to commemorate the wedding of Charles & Diana. They differ from their normal spinning chairs in that they feature a heavily carved  and dated back splat, known to have been handcarved by Bob Hunter, before be established his own  'wren' trademark. 

The chair presents in excellent structural and cosmetic condition, purchased privately from clients we've known for a number of years.

Both Beaver and Wren Furniture continue to produce these chairs today, although any carving to the back splat is charged as an extra depending on the complexity of the design required.

Circa 1970

An excellent privately acquired oak Writing Bureau / Cupboard, which although unusually unmarked, is recalled as having been made by Colin 'Beaverman' Almack, when based in Thirsk for the original owners. Their son and daughter still vividly recall using it to complete their homework in the 1970s. We are also aware of an almost identical but slightly later made piece  being sold by Tennants Auctioneers, Leyburn, so are confident in the attribution to Colin Almack.  Adzed to all visible surfaces with a   panelled fall front upper section which opens to reveal a leather inlaid writing desk and shelved interior. Below is a multi panelled twin door cupboard, with a central fixed shelf within. Excellent waxed condition and  rich colour, the interior clean with minimal light usage marks. The key for the lock fitted to the upper section has unfortunately been lost, but new replacement locks/keys are widely avilable should purchasers wish to be able to lock the upper section.

Size:  76(w) x 31.5(d) x 111.5(h)cm
