Item Description

Arthur Simpson of Lakes School 1930’s Mahogany Bookcase

A simple, timeless design, made in solid mahogany timbers, including the backboards, this Arthur Simpson of Kendal is in excellent, clean condition, in the original finish and has the Arthur Simpson makers label on the back along with impressed model numbers. Each shelf has the original hinged dust flap.
Simpson is one of the forgotten masters of English Arts & Crafts Furniture. Born in Cumbria, in 1857, he showed an early flair for wood carving, taking two apprenticeships and working in London before returning to Kendal to establish his famous Handicrafts workshop. The clean simple lines and superb workmanship of his Arts & Crafts furniture found a ready market locally. Simpson died in 1922, but the workshop continued under the guidance of his son until 1950.
