James Plucknett, having had various partners in his company, operated as a sole trader from 1886-1905, the year of his death. He advertised his work as 'manufacturers of rich carved furniture', trading as 'James Plucknett & Co Art Furniture Manufacturers'. His commissions included The Royal Pavilion for the Royal Warwick Show of 1892, and The Urquhart Commission, details of which are recorded in considerable detail of the Furniture History Society annual report of 1996 (pp159-179), which contains images showing similarities between the caryatids of our table and the Urquhart Commission.
