I'm looking for drawings for this piece, for a possible reproduction. I don't know if there are any, although there are photographs in several of the usual references (e.g. Shea). If I can't find them, then I'll head off and draw it myself.
There are drawings of something similar in a couple of Handberg's books (actually two different drawings, as they measure the back flap differently). This is described as being from the "Andrews Collection" though, not Bath. I've also heard that some of the Bath pieces were bought from the Andrews collection in the '60s.
I may well measure and re-draw it properly anyway, as Handberg doesn't draw the details of the top slide mechanism.
Does anyone know:
- If the Bath piece is indeed the Andrews piece?
- If there's a drawing of the Bath piece?
- Where these piece(s) were made?
- If Bath will ever put the top back on their wood stove the right way round!
