The Furniture Makers Company in London awards a select number of Bespoke Guild Marks each year to the best designed and finest pieces made in England. Each piece is recorded at the Livery Company and the work is inlaid with a numbered enamelled emblem.
Once a year the Claxton-Stevens prize is awarded to the most outstanding piece and Ian Heseltine is honoured to have received this award twice in 1994 and 2002.
