Description

A stunning teak sideboard by Morris of Glasgow. Two single shelved cupboards are split either side of a central bank of four drawers, the top drawer with felt-lined cutlery divider. There is ample storage space within this beautiful piece of retro furniture by the much sought after mid century maker, Morris of Glasgow. Design highlights of this piece include, the stylish, long sweep of the drawer pulls and the attractive shaping of the cupboard door handles.

In 1947 Morris became the favoured supplier of Royalty and were commissioned to design and fit a special bedroom suite for the Queen and Prince Philip as a royal wedding gift. The wood was taken from the balmoral estate and then sent to their first home at Clarence house . Today the furniture resides in Sandringham castle. Eighteen years later Morris again performed the same role fitting Her Majesty’s namesake cruise ship.

During the second half of the twentieth century Morris Furniture Group experienced steady growth within the furniture sector. Introducing new products and ranges the Morris Furniture Group saw themselves expand into new markets with high end luxury goods. In 1955 Morris Furniture produced wurlitzer juke boxes to USA to support the boom in music boxes.

In 1958 Morris Furniture was involved in the festival of Britain exhibiting all that was good in British furniture and in 1963 Neil Morris won many design awards for his famous Bambi chair and Clouds occasional tables. Even today collectors seek these valued and exceptional designs.

By 1967, once again, Morris Furniture found themselves in the privileged position of fitting the ocean liner QE2(Queen Elizabeth the second) for the Royal Family. In 1970 Morris won contracts to supply British Embassies with desks and cabinets continuing their great heritage in office furniture.

In very nice condition with a minor wear to Left hand edge (see photo).
