Maple & Co Antique Furniture

Maple & Co Antique Furniture 1870 – 1950

Maple & Co was one the largest and most successful British furniture retailers and cabinet makers in the Victorian and Edwardian periods. They were well known for fine quality, craftsmanship and were specialists in copying old designs but bringing them up to date to the more modern trends. They produced many quality pieces of furniture in designs such as Hepplwhite and Chippendale but also were well known for their quality Arts & Crafts Furniture.

Maple & Co was first established by John Maple, a shopkeeper, Surrey, who later opened a furniture shop in Tottenham Court Road but it was his son, John Maple, who pushed Maples & Co to be such a huge success. With his skills in business, by the 1880s they were the largest furniture store in the world as they exported their fine antique furniture to many different countries and were well known throughout the interiors world.

  1. I have a chest that is a 2 over 2 small that has the J. Maple & Co. brand on the top of the face of a drawer. Can you help with dating this chest. It is a small chest 35w. 35 3/4h and 19 1/2d with two small drawers and two large drawers with the bottom drawer being deep and the bottom has the apron molding attached to it. It is made of mahogany solid and veneer. Any help would be appreciated.

  2. I have a Maple & Co Ladies writing desk which I wish to sell now but not sure of the price or where would be best to auction it if I cant sell it privately. Also where would be the best place to sell it, or would your company be interested in purchasing it. I have photos but there doesn’t seem to be an option to upload them. Please advise. Thanks Sheila

  3. I have a lovely sideboard that I would like to find a matching table. Could you tell me the name of the piece or any other information, age, etc?

  4. I have an five foot long oak buffet base, with brass tear drop handles and front barley twist legs. The cupboard doors are heavily carved. There is a nameplate of Arding & Hobbs Clapham Junction inside one of the doors, but I believe it is a piece made by Maples furniture company. I discovered that Arding & Hobbs replaced the makers mark with their own trade name on furniture made by the Maple family.

    I see that the trade name of Arding & Hobbs is up for sale, but can find no details of the marketability of furniture with these identifications . I would like to sell this piece but have nothing to base the price on. Would you be kind enough to advise me ?

    1. Hi
      I think Arding & Hobbs, Clapham Junction was a furniture retailer so they would buy second hand furniture, restore them and then sell them on. Unfortunately there is not a great deal of other information on this company. If it is a maple piece, there would be a plaque inside or a stamp imprinted on the top of a drawer or door. They can sometimes have numbers stamped on the back also. It would be worthwhile checking over the piece to see if any makers stamps can be seen. For me to advise on the buffet I would need to see it in the flesh or it might be worth while checking with your local antiques auction for a free valuation.
      Kind regards
      James

      1. Thank you for your response. I have only just revisited your website and found it so appologies for the delay in replying. I shall have a closer look for any other identifiable marks.

        Kind regards, Lesley Williams

      2. Hi James
        I have a pure All-Brass bedstead that has the Maple & Co. London brand. I would appreciate if you could help with age & value this bed. I would like to sell this piece but have no idea on the price. Would you be kind enough to advise me?
        I am attaching JPEG pictures to your attention.

  6. Hello, I have a pair of really pretty Maple & Co chairs which I have just re-upholstered and debating if I should sell or not. Please could you advise me as to their value as I do love them and don’t want to sell them for less than they are worth.

    Kind Regards,

  7. I have recently obtained lots of original 1960s pen and pencil drawings of proposed offices and kitchens et cetera for wealthy homes and businesses hotels from an artist named Lewin who worked for maple and co and also works for hamptons and sons london also found lots of floor plans made for moss bros when the business was expanding in the early 1960s by the famous maple and co

  8. I resently obtain a Maple & Comp French Sever Solid Maple with top and drawer have burrel maple in Lays It is 59 1/2 inches long ,37″ high and 20 1/2 in deep. It had two draws and side cabinte on end. Top drawer has the maple lable and velvet lined for silver. The two side cabinet, one on left just has a sheft, but the one on the right has what looks like a drawer for wine and liqure decounters. It has six spaces and the entire drawer is lined in what looks like tin that has been treated. I have never seen this before, though it maybe common, I can not find anthing about it. If anyone knows, apprx. age, or any thing about it It would be appreciated. Also what type of wood was used in making the sides and botton of the drawer. Looks like oak, but not up on my woods. Thanks,.

  10. Hi
    I have recently acquired from my Mother a Maples and Co cocktail cabinet.It requires repolishing but otherwise is in very good condition. I think it must be from the 1930’s.Please could you send me any additional information about name of style and possible value if French polished?
    Cheers

    1. Hi

      Kind regards

  11. Hi! I have an armpit I bought from a friend whose parents lived in England for a few years in the 80’s. Was wondering if you could tell me anything about it and how much it is worth? I have pictures I can send.

    Thanks!
    Robin

  12. Dear Sir,
    I have a number of Maple & Co old furniture showroom catalogues eg Titled “Wood and Metal Bedsteads” and “Dining Room Library & Hall” and “Drawing Room Furniture” and “Reproductions of Old Furniture” and these are all in very good condition for there age, and I can provide images if need be, and are these of any value to the antique trade.
    Thanks in advance.
    Kind Regards
    Lionel

    1. Hi
      I do have a couple of these old maple catalogues on furniture and I am hoping to publish some pictures on our blog soon. You can pick these up fairly reasonably, we have bought them for around £10 in the past but if you would like to send images i can gladly have a look as it may be something we can publish in the future, if they are different to what we already have
      Kind regards

  13. We purchased an 8 piece bedroom set in Montrose Scotland in 1979. The pieces are stamped MAPLE & CO. There are some storage stickers on the large wardrobe from the 1880s. The pieces are: chest of drawers, 2 night stands, 3 door wardrobe w/large mirror on center door, women’s vanity with mirror and tiled foot rest, wooden top washstand, table top mirror, and a marble top washstand with tiled back splash and footrest. We have looked for similar pieces and have never been able to locate anything close. The pieces are heavily inlaid. Are you familiar with similar sets? We were told the set came from a Scottish castle. Any insight would be appreciated.

    1. Hi
      Yes we have had sets like this in the past by Maple & Co but it is quite unusual to find such large matching sets still complete. Most were split up over time. It would be difficult to offer any other advice without seeing the pieces but it does sound lovely
      Kind regards
      James

      1. James,
        I noticed the stamps on the pictured pieces on this page are MAPLE&CoLd. The stamps on our pieces do not have the Ld – They are just stamped MAPLE&Co. Also, The one sticker I can get to easily is on the inside of the wardrobe middle door. It is not complete; but, it does say :
        CAVENDISH HOUSE CO. LIMITED
        Cheltenham
        “something unreadable” & Safe Deposit Store
        11/7/89 (or 84 hard to tell)

        1. Hi
          If it is Just Maple and Co it is probably a Victorian piece so possibly 1889 from your sticker. The CAVENDISH HOUSE CO. LIMITED may have been a retailer who would have sold the piece
          Kind regards
          James

          1. James,
            That sounds correct. A couple of the pieces have key locks. The locking mechanisms are stamped “VR” with a crown between the two letters. They also are stamped “Secure Lever Lock”. Would you like me to send pictures of the pieces? Appreciate your expertise.
            Michael

          2. James,
            I will email pictures to info@antiquesworld.co.uk to your attention. It would be interesting to know if the design is one that you have seen before or is it something unusual.
            Appreciate all your effort.
            Michael

          3. Good Day James,
            I wanted to verify if you received the photos I emailed? I sent them as JPEG.
            Thanks,
            Michael

          4. Hi
            This looks to be Arts and Crafts ca.1880 – 1890 and probably in ash. it is unusual to find full sets like this but we do see many in a similar design from this period
            Kind regards
            James

  14. James,
    FYI – I emailed a sample of pictures. If you could use more specific shots, just let me know.
    Cheers,
    Michael

  15. Hi there
    I ‘ve got the chair from Trademe NZ for my craft project and did find that the chair has a stamp MAPLE&Co and also has the lable with “MAPLE&Co LONDON UPHOLSTERS BY APPOINTMENT HER MAJESTY” and number 6324. Could you please tell me how old is this one and is it collectible item or just an old one? Many thanks. Irina

    1. Hi
      Looking at the picture, it looks to be late Victorian ca. 1890 and yes they are collectable. Being a single chair the value may only be around 50 – 100 GBP but when you have a pair or larger set, they can warrant a much greater price.
      I hope this helps
      Kind regards
      James

      1. Hi James
        Many thanks for answer. Also can I ask one more question. Is it better to keep old upholstery (it seems to be original) or to change for similar new one as I wanted to do? Thanks for your time. Kind regards. Irina

  16. Hello, I have a maple and co writing bureau, apparently 1890 … Wondered if you could tell me more about it and what it may be worth…. Etc … It is on castor wheels ,if that helps and green leather writing surface .

  17. Hi
    Thanks for the mail. I have a Maple & Co London Brass bed. Can you please help with dating this and are these of any value to the antique trade.
    Photos were mailed to info@antiquesworld.co.uk. Any insight about it would be appreciated.
