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.
