He was a Manchester cabinetmaker who started in the mid-Victorian era. James Lamb was born in 1816, he joined the family business and turned it into a high-class interior design, decorating and furnishing firm. The firm had a cabinet making workshop in Castleford and their main gallery in John Dalton Street, Manchester, with vast furniture showrooms over three floors showing their quality pieces for sale. The firm was to go onto international success winning medals at the London 1862 Exhibition and the Paris 1867 Exhibition. James Lamb died in 1903, his obituary appeared in The Journal of Decorative Art and British Decorators where it stated that: His name was a synonym for the best in everything that he did from 1850 – 1885, and he towered over everybody in Lancashire and Yorkshire as maker of high-class furniture. His name for 50 years stood as a landmark for all that was best in both spheres of industrial art.
