This was suspended during the war, re-opening in 1946 with his brother, Dicon, as a gallery / workshop on the quayside. Dicon designed a pottery wheel for Bernard Leach and the furniture workshop made picture frames for Ben Nicholson and other St Ives artists and sculpture bases for Barbara Hepworth. Nance Furniture was shown at the Festival of Britain, 1951, Red Rose Guild of Craftsmen, 1950 and sold through The Craft Centre in The Haymarket. The business was closed in 1972.
