Early 1960s solid afromosia sideboard by Richard Hornby for Fyne Ladye Furniture ANOTHER SOON

Early 1960s solid afromosia sideboard by Richard Hornby for Fyne Ladye Furniture ANOTHER SOON

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 .
