Jackson & Graham: Clive Edwards begins his article in the Furniture History Society journal by saying: 'In the pantheon of Victorian furnishing enterprises, few names are more important than Jackson and Graham'. (Clive Edwards, ‘The Firm of Jackson and Graham’, Furniture History, Vol. XXXIV (1998), pp.238-65.
The firm of Jackson & Graham was established by Thomas Jackson and Peter Graham at 37 Oxford Street, London, in 1836 and was active until 1885. The firm specialised in exceptionally high quality furniture using exotic luxurious materials and clients included Queen Victoria, Napoleon III, the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, the Grand Khedive at Cairo, and the Royal Palace in Siam. The company ‘represented the highest British cabinet-making skills at international exhibitions, but also exemplified a class of business that was specifically developed to meet the furnishing needs of the new wealthy classes of the nineteenth century’ (Clive Edwards, ‘The Firm of Jackson and Graham’, Furniture History, Vol. XXXIV (1998), pp.238). The last great international exhibition which the firm attended was the Paris International Exhibition in 1878, at which their skills and products won them the Prix d'Honneur for the ‘maintenance of standards and progress in thirty years of art workmanship’. The furniture jury noted of them: ‘the workmanship is so perfect that even with the aid of a magnifying glass scarcely the slightest imperfection is to be found’.
