In 1908 Mr C.T.D.Crews presented to the Company a carved Oak Chair for use by the Master. It was inscribed:
Presented By Charles.T.D.Crews, D.L.,J.P., F.S.A.,
Twice Master of the Musicians Company 1908
It bore the arms of James I and was covered with velvet of that period.
While being stored at Stationers' Hall, it was destroyed by fire resulting from enemy action in 1940.
In 1966 a new Master's Chair was presented by Viscountess Astor in memory of her late husband Lord Astor who had been Master in 1964/5.
