About the event
The Pettigrew davenport is one of the nationally significant items in the QWHA collection. Made from over 30 local timbers, the davenport was completed and displayed in August 1873 in the joinery shop of John Carey in Brisbane. Geoff and Robyn will talk about the people associated with the making of this outstanding example of Queensland colonial carpentry. The davenport will be on display so all can see the beautiful back panel.
