19th C Johnstone & Jeanes Leather Chesterfield


A Stamped “Johnstone & Jeans 67 New Bond St London” walnut 19th Century Victorian period tufted leather chesterfield.

English, circa 1860.

A rare and extremely well drawn, having good deep proportions, 19th century figured walnut Chesterfield upholstered in a deep buttoned tan leather, stamped by the prominent London cabinet makers Johnstone and Jeanes, raised on the original gilt Cope and Collinson castors.

Having a shaped breakfront edge and scrolling arms being upholstered in a fine quality deep buttoned hand dyed leather hyde. The back being sprung gives support when seated whilst having a good deep sprung seat for comfort.
The front legs of turned figured walnut retain their original gilt Cope and Collinson brass castors with the rear splay legs again of figured walnut similarly retaining the original castors.

A superb quality chesterfield having the sought after rare shaped front and set back arms by one of the finest cabinet and upholstery makers of their day. A very desirable chesterfield to any private individual with a discerning eye or collector alike.
Johnstone & Jeanes.

John Johnstone of Bond Street is widely know for his collaboration with Robert Jupe (Johnstone, Jupe & Co) whom together patented a remarkably inventive expanding circular dining table with segmented leaves called the Jupe Table in March 1835.

Their partnership was short lived owing to a falling out in 1840. Jupe separated the business moving to Wellbeck Street whilst Johnstone then traded as 'Johnstone & Jeanes’ at their same initial address 67 New Bond Street, London from 1842 until 1880 suppling fine quality furniture.

The firm exhibited their furniture at the Great Exhibition 1851, The International Exhibition of London in 1862, and The Paris Exhibition of 1878. 

The Royal Collection Trust and the Victoria & Albert Museum both have stamped examples of Johnstone & Jeanes furniture within their collections as well as Buckingham Palace and numerous other important collections.

Now into the second generation, Loveday antiques is run by Alexander Loveday.

From the early days until 2012 Loveday Antiques had three major showrooms running, located at Chelsea, Ascot and Islington, but sensing the major shift towards the online side of the business in January 2013 Alexander decided to close both Chelsea and Ascot and concentrated more on working via the internet and website as traders, interior designers and the public's buying habits changed.

The internet now allows us to trade globally 24/7, whilst keeping our overheads down and passing on these savings to our clients.

The start of 2014 has also led to more change, relocating the original showroom in London from The Furniture Vault in Camden Passage, from where we have traded for over 40 years, to our new showroom conveniently located in Hertfordshire within the A1 and A10 areas, just off the M25.

The new showroom is just North of London and only a 20 minute train journey from Kings Cross, London to Stevenage, with just a short 10 minute drive from there.  We are can easily arrange to pick clients up from the station as long as you let us know when you are coming.  If you are driving, it is 10 minutes from both the A10 and A1m.
