Rare Anglo Japanese Octagonal Side Table by James Shoolbred, London, c.1880
REF: Jas Shoolbred / LA372329
A rare Anglo Japanese - Walnut long octagonal side table by renowned James Shoolbred & Co circa 1880. Attributed to H W Batley. Comprising square tapering splay legs with rod galleries and an under tier - with the original London label, stamp and serial number.
Anglo Japanese - style was developed in the Uk through the Victorian period and into the early Edwardian period from circa 1851 to the 1910s when a new appreciation for Japanese design and culture influenced how designers and crafts people made "British Art" and especially decorative arts including furniture and English architecture. Important centres specifically included London and Glasgow.
The table is attributed to H W Batley. Henry William Batley (1842-1932) was a British Aesthetic Movement Artist and Designer who worked actively in London from 1870s to the first decade of the twentieth century and was highly acclaimed as an artistic etcher and designer of furniture, textiles, carpets, wallpapers and total schemes of decoration for many of England's leading manufacturers such as James Shoolbred & Co. His furnishings were exhibited at the Philadelphia Centennial in 1876, the Paris Exposition Universelle in 1878 and the Chicago World's Columbian Exposition in 1893.
James Shoolbred & Co (aka Jas Shoolbred) was established in the 1820s at 155 Tottenham Court Road, London W1 and became famous for designing, manufacturing and selling high quality furniture. In the 1880s Shoolbred had opened London's first large department store on Tottenham Court Road. In the mid 1880s Shoolbred was granted a Royal Warrant, testament to the excellent design aesthetic and high quality of their furniture.
Attributed to H W Batley and made by James "Jas" Shoolbred, London, W1.
