This Arts & Crafts oak wardrobe with a single door and pewter inlay of a ship was produced by Harris Lebus. It retains its original copper handle and stamp on the lock.

Harris Lebus was a furniture manufacturer and wholesaler based in the East End of London in Tabernacle Street with a factory in Tottenham. The firm supplied stores such as Maple & Co., mainly producing bedroom and dining cabinets.

During the period of its finest output in the 1900s, the style of furniture is closely associated with the Arts & Crafts movement, identified by overhanging cornices, inset door panels and square to turned legs with pad feet in the manner of William Birch of High Wycombe. The off the peg hardware is unfussy and stylistically well designed. These pieces are highly sought after.

As with many larger firms their designers are kept anonymous. This prolific manufacturer had more to do with bringing the Arts and Crafts style to the masses than any other.

In later years Harris Lebus became a household name being the largest furniture manufacturer in the world.
