Furniture by Johnstone and Jeanes

The makers of this lovely antique writing table were master craftsmen and only used the finest quality woods. Based in New Bond Street in London from 1842 to 1880. Johnstone along with his partner Robert Jupe had invented the ‘Jupe’ table in 1835 - a circular table that could be extended using insertable leaves. This was an innovation and gave circular tables a flexibility that they did not previously have. They plied their trade in these tables from New Bond Street, but unfortunately they fell out and Jupe moved to Welbeck Street. Johnstone was joined by Jeanes and they continued to make beautiful pieces of furniture at the same address.

Our reference: 08864

Antique Furniture By the cabinet makers Johnstone and Jeanes will be of very high quality as they only used the finest quality timbers and were skilled craftsmen. They were based in 67 New Bond Street in London from 1842 until 1880 run by John Johnstone. Before becoming Johnstone & Jeanes, John Johnstone along Robert Jupe created the most amazing metamorphic table called the Jupe Table in the William IV period of 1835. It was a circular table that could have leaves added to make it larger in size. Johnstone and Jupe established their company, Johnstone, Jupe & Co at 67 New Bond Street specialising in these tables, but in the early Victorian era of 1840, they fell out so Robert Jupe moved his business to Welbeck Street. John Johnstone carried on making beautiful pieces of furniture in the same address for forty years and occasionally we do get some beautiful examples for sale.

Flame Mahogany
Thomas Sheraton
 - 18th century furniture designer, once characterized mahogany as "best suited to furniture where strength is demanded as well as a wood that works up easily, has a beautiful figure and polishes so well that it is an ornament to any room in which it may be placed." Matching his words to his work, Sheraton designed much mahogany furniture. The qualities that impressed Sheraton are particularly evident in a distinctive pattern of wood called "flame mahogany."

The flame figure in the wood is revealed by slicing through the face of the branch at the point where it joins another element of the tree.
