Mantel for Rookwood estate by Henry L. Fry and William H. Fry, 1851-1868
William Henry Fry (ca. 1830 – 1929) was a wood carver and gilder of the Aesthetic Movement born in England. In the 1850s Fry moved to Cincinnati, Ohio to work in a shop run by his father, Henry Fry. In the 1870s the family began giving private instruction to Cincinnatians on woodcarving techniques. His father, incidentally, carved the throne of Queen Victoria. Many of his wood pieces can be viewed at the Cincinnati Art Museum.
