Robin Nance (1907 - 1990) Like Stanley Webb davies he was apprenticed in 1924 to Arthur Romney Green and took inspiration from the traditions of the Arts and Crafts movement   before setting up business in his native St. Ives in 1933. Business was suspended  whilst he saw active service during the war years but was resumed with his younger brother Dicon after demobilisation. The business continued until his retirement in 1972.
