James Lamb, founder of one of the most successful late nineteenth-century regional British cabinetmakers, commissioned work from a number of notable designers, such as Bruce Talbert and Alfred Waterhouse, the designer of Manchester Town Hall. The quality of the firm's work was consistently high, and won for the firm prizes at the several International Exhibitions in which they participated. Lamb's main market however, was the new middle-classes living in and around Manchester, People whose aspirations were satisfied by well-made, modish furniture, which showed off a variety of materials in striking and elegant designs.
