There are around 50-100 high definition super-sized pictures at the bottom of this page. A good looking functional and well made English refectory table from one of the finest cabinet makers our country has ever seen. The table is in period condition, it has a three plank top which has a couple of splits due to age and fair use, the top has been refinished by stripping it back, staining and then sealing with a work surface finish, what this means is the table is as sanitary as a kitchen worktop, ideal for modern life! Antique furniture by James Shoolbred and Co.James Shoolbred & Co or also knows as Jas Shoolbred was established in the 1820s as a drapers shop, at Tottenham Court Road, London. The company first began supplying textiles to the furniture trade.
By the 1880s, 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. 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.
Unfortunately, as with most great Victorian designers and furniture makers, James Shoolbred & Co didnt survive the financial crisis of the late 1920s and ceased trading in 1931.
