Pair of Chairs in the manner of E.W.Godwin
REF: Lambs . / LA352934
E.W.Godwin (manner of ). A rare pair of untouched chairs in the Anglo-Japanese/Aesthetic movement manner. One still retains its original upholstered seat with a Japanese inspired covering. Made by Lambs of Manchester. Some say Lamb .Others say Lambs .of Manchester . Lambs of Manchester were regarded as one of the foremost cabinet making firms in the UK together with being innovative in designs .Several leading designers were employed by them On one advert elsewhere I have seen items ascribed to Godwin and made by Lambs; However there is no evidence to substantiate this claim. These chairs are certainly a striking design and clearly show Godwins influence.
