h1 classbiography Charles Baker (1841 - 1932)h1Charles Baker (1841-1932) was a Bath cabinetmaker and part of an important family of cabinet makers working in the 19th and 20th centuries. Charles specialised in the reproduction of antique furniture especially 18th century designs of Sheraton and Chippendale patterns. His company made 100 chairs for the Bath Guildhall Banqueting Room at a cost of 5 each and a cabinet for Queen Victorias dolls house. A picture was painted the year after he retired aged 88 by Frederick George Swaish who worked in Bristol and Bath painting landscapes and still lifes as well as portraits. The picture hangs in the Victoria Art Gallery Bath and is the last image in our listing. Together with his elder brother William Charles trained in chair making under his father Alexander Baker. Having worked with his brother and nephews for many years he established his own company in 1888 moving to the suitably named Chippendale House 4 Wells Road Bath.
