Antique Furniture by the cabinet makers Harrison & Son of Burnley
In the late 19th Century there were a small form of the cabinet makers called Harrison & Son of Burnley in Lancashire who built high quality Antique Furniture. They specialised in bedroom furniture and library furniture but although their furniture was such good quality there is not much information available on this firm. From our experience, most pieces come from the late Victorian era of 1870 to 1900 but I would welcome any further information if anyone has any? Please comment below as we would love to know more. They should be more well recognised due to their quality and craftsmanship of their furniture. Below are a few examples of pieces that they made along with cabinet makers labels.

The two outer doors have the original bevelled mirrored glass panels, moulded edges and striking figured walnut central panel with the original handles and key with working lock. Each interior has a removable shelf above a later brass hanging rail and hooks. The right hand side interior has a deep lower drawer and the piece as a whole stands on a moulded plinth.
