The Tricorn Binocular Stand
An unusual and specific commission – to design and make a stand whose prime function was to mount a pair of powerful binoculars to view the racing on the Solent with the viewing height tailored to the client. When the binoculars are stored in the safe, the handmade brass mountings are hidden within the column and, with the addition of a top, it becomes a jardinière.
