P.E GANE ltd (1909 - 1954) , were cabinet makers who became associated with producing quality Arts & Crafts & Arts Nouveau furniture.
Philip Enders GANE became sole proprietor of Trapnell & GANE cabinet makers in 1909 & took the opportunity to not only change its name to his own , but also to move away from the more traditional commissions from Royalty and the establishment, & explore new developments in Arts & crafts & Art Nouveau design.
In the 1930ís the firm successfully collaborated with Marcel Breuer , the modernist. Philips two sons, Leslie & Crofton joined the firm & took over when their father died in 1933. World War II took its toll when the firms premises were largely destroyed in 1940 by enemy action.
Unfortunately the company never really recovered from the war & the company went into voluntary liquidation in 1954
I have been established as a dealer and antique furniture restorer for almost 20 years.
I have a real love and passion of fine 18th and early 19th century furniture.
As a professional restorer I am always searching for the finest quality and original items but should any restoration be nessesary it will be sympathetically and skilfully carried out in house by myself.
