- Curator's comments
- Whilst initially it was thought the case was made by Thomas Carpenter, it has now been suggested by Philip Priestley that it might well have been made by Thomas Colley. Unfortunately the register for the years 1738-59, which would have contained this mark is now missing. (LCT)
