About this item

Early 1960s solid afromosia sideboard by Richard Hornby for Fyne Ladye Furniture
Fyne Ladye Furniture , A Younger and Dalescraft all made a few solid afromosia sideboards in the late 1950s and early 1960s before they all moved to making teak veneered models . All were quality up market medium sized companies at the time . Afromosia is a dark teak that wasn’t suitable for use as a veneer , and as a result all the sideboards made from it are like this one and extremely heavy for their size .
Richard Hornby was a very accomplished designer , and the use of these stylish minimalist cut out handles were often a characteristic of his lovely simple designs . He was active in the late 1950s and into the mid 1960s , but we are not sure about what happened to him after that . Fyne Ladye Furniture of Banbury was a successful maker before the 2nd world war , and started making top quality contemporary furniture in the late 1950s . Like a lot of their competitors they were at their peak in the 1960s , and seem to have disappeared in the late 1960s when the British economy hit problems and taxes went up for their target customers . If you have any information about Richard Hornby or the fate of Fyne Ladye Furniture we would be very interested in hearing from you .
This lovely sideboard has been given a light clean and oiled so is now in lovely clean condition .
