Note: In 1909 Philip Endres Gane, partner in the firm Trapnell & Gane, became sole proprietor and gave the company his own name. He also took it in a new direction, moving away from royal and establishment commissions towards a more modern vision with a focus on quality Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveau furniture. In the 1930s Gane collaborated with Marcel Breuer. The company's premises were destroyed during WWII, and they were forced to close their doors.
Estimate $1,000-1,200
