In continuation of the series of inlaid panels representing the historical uniforms of the British Army, we bring the pictures up to pre-war period by introducing this week the dates of 1870 and 1910. Project # 1716.
The completed articles are roughly the same style as the previous pairs which have been produced, and form excellent mural decorations for billiard room, club room, lounge, etc. The panel is composed of a background of mahogany upon which is the central panel work of the inlaid picture itself. Project # 1694.

Project #1701.
Below and above the picture is a shaped projecting ledge which serves to throw the picture itself in greater relief. Below the lower ledge we have the simple overlay containing the date, whilst at the top of the picture and above the upper ledge we have an overlay holding in place the small circular beveled mirror. The general construction, therefore, is simple, as there are no joints to fix, and all the positions are ruled by the placing of the one central inlaid panel. Project #1708.
