Mace for The Furniture Makers’ Guild

A Mace commissioned by Sir Oliver Lebus for The Furniture Makers’ Guild and made primarily by Padgett & Baham Ltd. and T&A Wise Ltd. then in Broadwick Street, Soho, London. This was a memorable learning experience during my 2nd. yr. at the RCA. And the fantastic quality of craftsmanship adds greatly to the richly decorative effect so that the Mace is, for me, ‘a jewel’. I must mention the joy I felt on seeing the naturalistically worked silver leaves of British trees which Mr. A. Wise was carving and together with a spiralling ribbon of silver he was most skilfully, if magically it seemed to me, inlaying into the Yew-wood Shaft.
