Maple & Co. was a British furniture and upholstery manufacturer established in 1841 which found particular success during the Victorian and Edwardian eras. The company became one of the prime makers and suppliers of furniture to the aristocracy and royalty in both the United Kingdom and around the world. Maple & Co. became one of the most fashionable brands during Victorian and Edwardian Britain and supplied furniture and interior decoration to royalty and the aristocracy with commissions including White Lodge, Richmond Park (1870) the royal yachts: QE1 (1938), QE2 and the Queen Mary and the residence of the Viceroy of India, Simla (1892).


For the duration of their trading, the company was headquartered in Tottenham Court Road in London but had trading locations as far as Paris, Buenos Aires, Montevideo and Smyrna. By 1889, Maple & Co. occupied the block surrounded by Tottenham Court Road, Euston Road, Gower Street and Grafton Way.


Spode manufactured bone china for Maples and this is it’s ‘Peacock’ pattern 3541 manufactured c1914. Copied from a Chinese porcelain original, Spode originally made this pattern in 1815 but it became so immensely successful it reproduced it in various versions throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. The bowl is in good condition and the hand-enamelled colour over a black transfer pattern remains vibrant.


Planted with a Opti-Flor phalaenopsis.


All our plants are accompanied with detailed care instructions and packed up carefully in compostable recycled boxes packed with straw and shipped with an overnight courier service.


Our potted plants make lovely sustainable gifts as nothing is single use or thrown away - the bowl can be used for multiple purposes and the orchid can be re- planted into a bigger pot if necessary. Each pot comes with a personalised gift card and the option of our Cambridge Imprint wrapping paper and vintage velvet ribbon.
