About this item

Philip Webb for Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co. The firm became Morris & Co in 1875.
An extremely rare Arts and Crafts Aesthetic Movement Ebonised Settee.
Professionally re-upholstered in period style fabric.
This settee was designed to go with the famous bobbin turned adjustable reclining armchair also designed by Philip Webb for Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co. Those elegant timeless recliners were based on a design from an earlier traditional prototype found in the workshop of an old carpenter named Ephraim Colman in Herstmonceux, East Sussex. UK by George Warrington Taylor in 1866 the business manager at that time for Morris Marshall, Faulkner & Co. He drew a sketch and wrote a description of the chair and sent it to Philip Webb who adapted it for production by Morris, Marshall and Faulkner 1861-1875.

The settee is in original condition, the shaped aprons below the seat have distressed marks as seen in the images.
The rest of the ebonizing on the settee is in great shape, if required we can re-ebonize the aprons to tidy them up
