The Cabinet Maker and Art Furnisher of 1887 shows a “Rough Memory” sketch of a sideboard of this design exhibited at the 1887 Manchester Jubilee Exhibition, and noted that the “lines of the Manchester sideboard may be studied, for they are fresh”. The sketch is very closely related to the current Cabinet, and may illustrate the same piece. Manchester was an important part of the Morris and Co empire, as they exhibited at the Manchester Fine ART and Industrial Exhibition of 1882, and opened a shop there in 1883.
