Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
It is in superb condition and is upholstered in a fine cream fabric from the exclusive Beacon Hill range of fabrics. This is a really special piece that will grace any period room and add a touch of sophisticated style to a special place in your home.
I purchased this suite from a beautiful house in Hampstead, London. It was in a drawing room that was hardly ever used so this suite is in really excellent unmarked condition.
In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.

was originally founded in East London by Polish immigrants in the 1890s. The firm passed to brothers Harry and Lou Epstein and the pair turned their attention to the production of Art Deco forms from the 1930s until the 1950s.
Finished to high standards, most pieces were custom-made in veneers of burr maple, sycamore or walnut. The design of the famous ‘cloud’ seat furniture is credited to Epstein and the company also popularized the uniquely British taste in suite furniture.
Following World War II, Epstein had showrooms in London, Manchester and Glasgow. A conservative Art Deco style became the company`s trademark after the war and most pieces were made from bleached walnut. Art Deco pieces are not signed.
From the 1960s, some pieces were labelled ‘H. & L. Epstein’ or ‘Epstein & Goldman’.
The Walnut woods are probably the most recognisable and popular of all the exotic woods, having been used in furniture making for many centuries. Walnut veneer was highly priced and the cost would reflect the ‘fanciness’ of the veneer – the more decorative, then the more expensive and desirable.
