ERCOL SIDEBOARD AND DISPLAY CABINET - AN ANTIQUE OF THE FUTURE.

DESIGNED BY THE ITALIAN, LUCIAN ERCOLANI  - MAY1888 TO  JUNE 1976.

HE CAME FROM TUSCANY AND OPENED HIS FACTORY IN HIGH WYCOMBE, BUCKINGHAMSHIRE, ENGLAND.

HIS DESIGNS WERE BASED ON ENGLISH STYLES AND THIS PIECE IS MADE USING ENGLISH TRADITIONAL HARDWOOD. 

ENCOURAGED BY HIS PARENTS HE ENROLLED IN THE SHOREDITCH TECHNICAL INSTITUTE WHERE HE STUDIED DRAWING, DESIGN AND THEORY OF DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF FURNITURE.
IN THE EARLY 1900s SHOREDITCH WAS A THRIVING CENTRE OF FURNITURE PRODUCTION. THE INSTITUTE BECAME THE LONDON COLLEGE OF FURNITURE.

CO -INCIDENTALLY, THE SELLER WAS A LECTURER AT THAT COLLEGE FOR 24 YEARS UP TO 1990 AFTER WHICH IT WAS MERGED AS A FACULTY INTO THE LONDON METROPOLITAN UNIVERSITY . 

HOWEVER, THIS FAMILY HEIRLOOM HAS TO GO BECAUSE OF LACK OF SPACE IN MY RETIREMENT.  

LEAVE IT IN YOUR WILL TO YOUR GRANDCHILDREN WHO WOULD BE VERY FOOLISH TO TAKE IT TO THE DUMP.
