C1920 Signed James Shoolbred & Co Art Deco Cocktail Table
This Art Deco' wine or cocktail table is signed by James Shoollbred & Co, which was founded 1820 in London. Initially textile suppliers, they commenced making high quality luxury furniture in the 1860s, and became one of the first large department stores in London in the 1880s, acquiring a Royal Warrant from the Queen at that time. They were unable to survive the Great Depression and closed in 1931.
This very Gentlemen's Club looking table shows the very beginning of tables lower than dining table height, which has since led to the low coffee table so popular in the 20th century. It is only 61 cm tall and the diameter is 55 cm.
