Trinity College Dublin Chair case new side and back panels and frames

A view of the Chair organ from the Great wind chest, showing the case without the tower caps and roofs.  The front had survived as a screen, fortunately with enough evidence at the corners to show what the side panels looked like.  When the organ was moved to the Public Theatre in the 1790s the Chair organ was placed behind the gallery railing, almost as if the move was temporary.  It now projects through the rail, as it should, supported on hefty beams supplied in the 1790s.  Apart from these and the damaged front, the Chair case is all Nick’s work.
