Recorded as a STISA member in 1932, Mabel Shone was the elder sister of Emily ALLNUTT, and was born in Windsor. Her work is first referred to in a review of Show Day 1919, the first held since 1915. Again, in the 1924 Show Day review, she is noticed for her chief piece, When the Day is Over, termed a 'clever study' of the Eastern pier from the Malakoff. Another of her works was the stream at Zennor with the hills in the background. Mabel worked from Chy-an-Chy studios and was married to Captain Richard Edwardes SHONE (b.1866, d.1944). Mabel Shone died in St Ives in 1940.
Previous addresses known for Mabel are 57 Thames Street, New Windsor, Berkshire, 10 Clarence Crescent, Windsor, London, Paris and finally at St Ives.
