Maple & Co Antique Furniture

Maple & Co - London, Paris and Buenos Aires.

Maple & Co Antique Furniture 1870 to 1950

Maple and Co was one the largest and most successful British furniture retailers and cabinet makers in the Late 19th Century, 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 antique 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 in Surrey, who later opened a furniture shop in Tottenham Court Road. 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. During the late19th and early 20th Century they had showrooms and workshops in London, Paris and Buenos Aires.

In the late 1940s, after the World War, Maple & Co started to decline in sales due to high manufacturing costs and peoples tastes changed from the traditional look to more rounded Art Deco designs. They were a little slow in the uptake of these new fashionable, fast manufactured and cheap designs so their business rapidly went into decline. They eventually joined with Waring & Gillows to become Maple, Waring & Gillow.

    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.

  • 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 ?

    Reply
    • 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

    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.

    • 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

        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)

        Reply
        • 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

      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.

      The white button was first seen on early pieces of Maple and co Furniture so from around 1870 until around 1900.I think the label you mention with London and Paris would be from late Victorian era so around 1890 – 1900.

      • Hi James,
        Thank you for the information always thought they were used later and the metal plates and stamp on furniture was the earlier way of marking. I was interested to know because of a purchase I made at auction in 1983 of Maple & co cabinet. Although not knowing much about Maple & co at the time I did like the slender legs and colour (possibly walnut veneer).
        Over the years I’ve tried to find its age but have not found any similar cabinets and was beginning to think that the cabinet had been created from something else.
        Did Maples make specific orders for customers?
        I have recently sold the cabinet but would still like to find out about its origin and if it was really a Maples cabinet. I called it a cabinet because I do not know what to call it.
        It could be a pot cupboard (not sure about that because of the quality) or one from a pair of bedside cabinets; although I think too large for that unless in a very large bedroom or even a hall side cabinet is there such a thing?
        Top Height 29 3/4”
        Top Width 28 1/2”
        Top Depth 16”
        Cabinet Width 20”
        Cabinet Depth 14 1/2”

        • Hi Jim
          The round porcelain labels and with the name stamped in the wood was the earliest forms of marks. The metal labels came later and also they did plastic or ivorine plaques on later pieces. They did often do specific orders for clients so you piece may have been a one off.

    • Hi
      Is this something you want to sell or just need info on? if it is something you want to sell please email pictures but if it is stamped on the locks Maple and Co I would imagine this would be late Victorian or Edwardian.
      Thanks

    Hallo. I bought a piece in Argentina with a metal label “Maple &Co Ltd”. It looks like a small cabinet for make up or manicure set. I would like to know how old it might be. It also has a second lable: Rd N°541494. I have photos, where can I send them for help?
    Thanks a lot! Marcela

  • 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.

  • 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 ?

    • 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

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

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.
