John Crawford (c. 1849–1919) and his brother George first advertised as woodcarvers and gilders in 1873.
John trained at the Glasgow School of Art and with J. & G. Mossman from around 1880,
and a year later he and his brother were described as master woodcarvers.
After John Crawford's death, his daughters sold the business to long-time employees James Crawford (possibly a cousin), and William McIntosh, who expanded to make memorial brasses and carry out modelling.
They continued the business under the name John Crawford & Co., at the same address, until around 1939
Dimensions approx 12.5" high and 8" wide at the base.
