A rare Epstein U-base dining table with six scroll-back chairs all in bird's-eye maple veneers,
circa 1930s-1950s.

This suite has been fully restored using exacting traditional methods and reupholstered to a high standard. The fabric to the chairs is a faux suede which is comfortable, long wearing, resistant to major stains and meets international fire regulations.

The quality of the furniture produced by the Epstein brothers of London’s East End is among the finest in the British Art Deco style - in terms of both design and production. Sons of Morris Epstein a Russian immigrant cabinet maker, and born in the early years of the new twentieth century, all six brothers followed their father into the furniture trade. Morris retired in 1929 and his young sons, most notably Harry and Louis (Lou), went on to design and produce some of the most innovative furniture of the period. Their style reflected the avant garde influences of the Paris 1925 ‘Art Deco’ exhibition, seen in their use of curvilinear forms and rich veneers. These traits blended, almost unconsciously, with a certain grandeur and scale that derived from their family’s Russian background, and found expression in designs that were also in tune with the Modernist ethos emanating from continental Europe. The styling of the iconic ‘Cloud suite’, for instance, conveyed that sense of sunshine, fresh air and exercise that was promoted as the key to a healthy mind and body, and as an antidote to any lingering shadows of the horrors of the First World War.
