About

A beautifully elegant English walnut settee by Morant & Co. of New Bond Street, London, circa 1900-1910. Covered in an attractive blue linen with a contrasting cream and blue cross stitch design standing on block and baluster turned supports. Bearing the Morant & Co. of 91 New Bond Street label under the seat. Provenance: Cowdray Park, West Sussex and Christie's London. History of Morant & Co: The dictionary of English furniture makers 1660-1840, published by the Furniture History Society informs that Morant Snr. was a maker of carved and gilded frames from early in the reign of George IVth, and his trade card describes the company as ‘Ornamental Painter and Paper Hanging Manufacturer to their Royal Highnesses’. Work was executed for Sir Thomas Lawrence, Sir Robert Peel, the Dukes of Sussex, Cambridge and Sutherland, inter alia. The company exhibited in the Great Exhibition of 1851, The New York International Exhibition of 1853, and The London International Exhibition of 1862. ‘Masterpieces of Industrial Art & Sculpture, edited by J.B.Waring, published in 1862 illustrate a wonderful sideboard made for Lord Ellesmere, that was shown at this exhibition. A Royal Warrant was granted in 1840, by Queen Victoria. Throughout the 19th century, they were recognized as one of England’s most eminent cabinet makers. Morant later joined forces with an interior designer or decorator called Lenygon forming Lenygon & Morant who in the 1930s took over the famous sofa and chair maker Howard & Sons. Condition: Excellent condition. The seat is solid and strong. Fabric in excellent condition and color. Good color and patina to walnut.
