Description

A beautiful vintage mid century sideboard by Harris Lebus. Splayed legs and eye-catching handle details are highlights of this piece and the drop-front drinks cabinet is the perfect place to mix your cocktails. A stylish vintage sideboard with super lines and fantastic handles.

Harris Lebus was a furniture manufacturer and wholesaler based in the East End of London in Tabernacle Street with a factory in Tottenham. The firm supplied stores such as Maple & Co., mainly producing bedroom and dining furniture. Following the Edwardian period the company became successful in the mass production of furniture affordable to a wider range of customers.

Following the war the firm became part of the government scheme to produce utility furniture bearing the CC41 mark and were central in providing cheaper manufacturing techniques to provide the country with lower cost furniture with which they could rebuild their homes, and in fact their design team invented and patented the technique of facing man-made boards with other woods. The company also devised and perfected the means of assembling furniture from preformed sections and completing the construction by curing resin glue lines, utilising ‘Radio Frequency’ electricity, or ‘R.F.’ There was no metal fixing required in the assembly at all. In addition, in the mid 1960s, the company patented an improved veneering procedure.

Harris Lebus ceased being a family partnership in 1947 when it was floated as a public company. Initially family members were on the main board with Sir Herman Lebus becoming chairman and managing director; LS Lebus assistant managing director and Anthony and Oliver Lebus members of the board. Louis H Lebus and SH (Bob) Lebus retired. After financial difficulty, caused by a period of poor management which was not by the family, the firm finally closed in 1969.
