Object Description

Arts and crafts cabinet made my Marsh Jones and Cribb, this cabinet is extraordinarily well made and uses some of the finest timber we have seen in a piece from this period. It is ebonised with solid ebony sections and has panels made of pure burr elm, gilt stringing and a mirror. English circa 1875

Object History

Marsh Jones and Cribb were based in Leeds and later also London. They were associated with such important designers as Charles Bevan, Bruce Talbert and William Lethaby. The firm exhibited to great success at the Paris exhibition of 1878. They are a very famous and influential company of designers and manufactures and their pieces are interesting to study and collect as there is so much information about them available.

This piece is so well made that it could have been created not for a customer but to demonstrate the skill of the manufacturer at one of the exhibitions at which the company participated.
