Hello Thomas,

I am a Greene and Greene enthusiast and have a question for you.

In your book, "Greene And Greene, Creating A Style", there is a photo on page 76 of the library table for the Freeman Ford house. This table has silver inlay. I am researching this table and was wondering about the silver inlay. Was the silver inlay scraped flush, or was it left proud of the surface? If proud, was it's surface curved, carved, or flat? I know the ebony was left 1/64" proud of the surface.

I don't suppose it would be possible to obtain a copy of this and/or other photos of this table/inlay/ I realize that the photos may be protected by agreement.

Thanks Tom,

Any chance at any of the photos?

I am in the process of building said table. They would be for my own research, and nothing else.

I understand if you cannot share them under these circumstances. I have copies of Charles' original drawings that I am working from.

I don't want to impose. What would be convenient for you?

If you can scrape some up there, that would be great. Otherwise, I understand it might be a while.

By the way, I am in the San Francisco Bay Area...

Hi Tom,

I wonder if you might remember anything about how the bottom shelf attaches to the bottom stretcher on that set of tables. The plans only show very basic details of what appears to be either a wide ebony plug on the face of the stretcher or the bottom shelf piercing the stretcher. I was wondering if you might remember or have photos of the bottom of the table(s).



Thanks for your time,
