Another achievement of the London group was the presentation of
commemorative marquetry pieces to various august bodies, one
example being this plaque (photo bottom right) bearing the coat
of arms of the London borough of Hackney.
Several members of the London group participated in the making
of the plaque and I'm pleased to say that some of them are still
with us in the Redbridge Marquetry group today.
This very decorative piece has
been hung in the council chamber at the Hackney Town Hall and
has stood up to the passage of time with all the fortitude and
dignity that its workmanship demanded.
As well as this
very important piece of marquetry work intended for permanent
display in Borough Council chambers, the London group also had
another even more significant marquetry piece they had been
working on that they intended to present to a very important
"here" to find out who this was.
