  • Provenance: Bought in Dublin, c. 1950

    James Hicks was born into a family of Dublin chair-makers and was trained in London in the cabinet making workshops on Tottenham Court Road. On his return to Dublin he set up businesses in Lower Pembroke Street in 1894 and established what was to become one of the city's leading cabinet-making firms. His clients included Princess Victoria, the Crown Princess of Sweden, and King Edward VII. The firm specialised in high quality copies of pieces in the styles of Sheraton, Hepplewhite, Chippendale styles as well as pieces in the style of the prominent 18th century Dublin cabinet-maker and marqueteer William Moore. Hicks described himself as a 'Cabinet Manufacturer, Collector and Restorer of Chippendale, Adam and Sheraton furniture'.
