High-back settle

This item was lost in the fire in The Mackintosh Building at The Glasgow School of Art on 23rd May 2014. All that remains is a badly damaged copper repousse panel. This was assessed by a conservator but no conservation work was deemed possible. Settle with high back and wings. The style of the settle is very similar to work produced by Wylie & Lochhead and it is most likely that it was made by this firm. The fabric was probably designed by Samuel Rowe. The woven fabric covering of the settle was woven by the firm of A H Less of Birkenhead in 1897 and is jacquard woven and warp-printed wool and cotton. Warp printing was a special technique used by this firm. Although Lee's bought designs from a numbers of leading freelance designers it is uncertain who designed this particular piece although it is likely to have been by Samual Rowe.
