Catalogue Note

Holland & Sons were the quintessential firm of Victorian cabinet makers and their style developed over the period between 1851 and 1870, which saw many changes to furniture making in Britain. These changes were stimulated by the series of international exhibitions commencing here in London with the so called Great Exhibition in the crystal palace and taking place in Paris in 1856, 1867, 1878 and 1889 and again in London in 1862.
