Holland & Sons (worked 1803-1968)
Originally founded in 1803 as Taprell, Stephen & Holland, becoming Taprell Holland & Son between 1835-1840, Holland & Sons became one of the largest and most successful furniture making companies of the 19th Century. The firm worked extensively for the Royal Family, being granted the Royal Warrant early in the reign of Queen Victoria, hence taking a leading part in the decoration and furnishing of Osborne House, Sandringham, Balmoral, Windsor Castle and the apartments of the Prince and Princess of Wales at Marlborough House. They took part in all the important International Exhibitions including the Great Exhibition of 1851.

Holland and Sons also worked extensively for the British Government, for whom they executed over three hundred separate commissions, including the Palace of Westminster, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and oversaw the State funeral of the Duke of Wellington.

Description / Expertise

The burr walnut breakfront top with a bevelled edge is fitted with a highly decorative shaped gallery above a burr walnut veneered frieze. The inset mirrored backs are surmounted on shaped walnut and brass beaded mouldings with gilt-metal mounts to each corner. The ormolu mounted turned and fluted uprights support book-matched veneer breakfront tiers. The buffet sits on walnut bun feet and is completely original throughout.
