Note: Henry Evan Lloyd, architect and builder from Manaia was the brother of Trevor Lloyd, an Auckland cartoonist, artist and noted collector of Māori artefacts. It is recorded that around 1914 Henry started carving mauri designs on everything in wood around his home and garden, including plant holders, a fire screen, clock case, lamp stand, front gates and a summerhouse whare. He inspired his brother, Trevor, to decorate their houses in a similar style. Provenance: By family descent. From the collection of Henry Lloyd's great granddaughter.
