Robson and Sons were cabinet makers of the highest standards; they were originally based in a small house at 42 Northumberland Street in Newcastle-on-Tyne. Robert Robson started the business in the William IV period of 1835 after serving his apprenticeship as a cabinet maker and upholsterer. His two sons followed in his footsteps to continue creating fine quality furniture along with working at hotels, churches to large ocean liners that were being built on the Tyne. After Robert’s death the sons opened a large factory where over 200 people were employed. Robson and Sons business carried on for four generations of their family before it was finally taken over by the Maple Group in 1953. They produced some fine pieces throughout their time and here at Driscolls Antiques Ltd we get some wonderful examples of Robson and Sons antique furniture for sale.
