Jas Shoolbred (James) Victorian Antique Mahogany Corner Chair / Entrance Bench
Manufacture & retailer - Jas Shoolbred
A Mid to late Victorian polished Mahogany entrance hall corner bench / settee.
James Shoolbred & Co or also knows as Jas Shoolbred was established in the 1820's as a draper's shop, at Tottenham Court Road, London. The company first began supplying textiles to the furniture trade. By the 1860's, the company began designing, manufacturing and selling its own high quality furniture in their thriving and fashionable furniture shop. By the 1880's, Jas Shoolbred had expanded to such an extent that the business had to move to larger premises, becoming one of the first large department stores in London, who would supply quality antique furniture and accessories for the Victorian home. The furniture was displayed in a series of catalogues that the company produced every year with their new and impressive designs. James Shoolbred's furniture was always displayed and photographed alongside the textiles, carpets and other accessories that the company sold, creating an example interior design for customers to view. Jas Shoolbred was granted a Royal warrant by the mid-1880s and their Victorian Furniture was of the best quality available of the late Victorian period. (source - Antiquesworld)
