Keith Welters is a City of London Freeman and Furniture Liveryman and is pictured above standing next to a chair made from oak and leather designed and manufactured by his grandfather in the 1930’s. The hand polished oak wooden cabinets were designed and recently installed as part of an ecclesiastical chapel refurbishment, providing niches for cremated remains with multi-material frontages in oak, glass and granite with brass fixings. The image encapsulates the wide ranging expertise and craftsmanship produced by welters® over the following decades as cabinet makers and producers of high quality furniture.
