Large Good Quality Mahogany Cellarette Robsons of Newcastle
Secure Payments By
This is an impressive good quality mahogany cellarette of sarcophagus form by Robson & sons of Newcastle dating from around 1840. The handsome piece is in flame mahogany veneer with a good colour and richly figured grain with fabulous solid mahogany hairy paw feet. The lead liner is present and the piece is raised on recessed brass castors. Robson & sons were cabinet makers of the highest standard. They started business in the William Iv period, the style of that era much reflected in this piece. The company was founded at 42 Northumberland Street Newcastle by Robert after serving an apprenticeship as a cabinet maker and upholsterer. His two sons later came into the business which went on to create fine furniture for hotels churches and large ocean liners that were being built on the Tyne. After Robert’s death the sons opened a large factory employing over 200 people. Robson and sons carried on for four generations before finally being taken over by the Maple group in 1953. This cellaret is a fine and substantial example of their early work. It would make a superb coffee table or statement piece as it is a very practical size.
