Horner is known for creating some of the greatest handcrafted oak furnishings of this period. Horner was a clerk at a curtain shop before opening his furnishing business in 1885. Although the firm lasted only 30 years, the pieces that were produced during that time displayed high-level carving and hand craftsmanship that was seldom seen during the Victorian Age, which was largely marked by mechanized work and industrialism.Today, items crafted by Horner are highly desirable and sought after by collectors of premium Victorian furniture. The 60 inch table features a beautiful quarter sawn oak top with a fully carved apron, resting on a paw footed split pedestal base. Nine 12 matching leaves are included, resting in a slotted wooden case for storage, as well as padded folding covers for the table. The sideboard is massive and measures 7 feet long by 5 foot tall.
The upper portion features intricately carved lions heads with a full length built-in mirror.
