Heaton Tabb & Co. were high quality furniture manufacturers based in Liverpool. Previously the Company was simply known as A.Heaton & Co. Their furniture was so well regarded that Harland & Wolff, shipbuilders in Belfast, who built the Oceanic, Olympic and the Titanic and the White Star Line decided to use the Company to decorate the Oceanic, Olympic and the Titanic. So much so, that Heaton & Co. had an office in Harland & Wolff’s shipyard in Belfast so that they could be on site while Titanic was being constructed.
The relationship between the two progressed over the next 20 years and Harland & Wolff decided to buy the Company in or around 1930 in order that the Company could be the SOLE manufacturers of their furniture. It then became known as Heaton Tabb & Co.

This suite was the personal office suite of the CEO of Woolworth’s British office, also in Liverpool.

This is your chance to own something that has historical significance and a connection to the famous Titanic.

Heaton Tabb & Co pieces from this era are extremely rare and this piece is of the highest quality.

Pictures of the furniture on Olympic (made by Heaton Tabb) show the quality that was used in all their furniture.

This is one for Titanic Collectors, Harland & Wolff collectors, White Star Line collectors, Woolworth’s Collectors and Furniture collectors……………..or simply someone who loves history and quality !!!

This Suite was purchased by us at Auction in Ireland and cost ‘a pretty penny’……it was my personal office suite for 10 years in my Law Offices. We still use it today in our Gallery.

I can safely say that it is the most complete and best office suite I have ever seen…………..other dealers have said the same !!!

Early 20C Partners Suite Heaton Tabb and Co.

Provenance: Bought High-end Auction in Ireland.

Dimensions: Partner’s Desk: 74″ long x 43″ wide and 31″ High. Knee Clearance of 24.75″.

Side Table: 76″ long x 42″ wide and 31″ high

Cabinet: 29″ wide x 18″ Deep and 31″ High

Trash Bin: 13″ x 13″ Wide and 14.5″ High

CONDITION: The Side Table needs some professional restoration due to some cracking and loss of the veneer.  The Partners Desk has a circular hole cut into the top and drawer underneath, for the running of monitor cables to a PC that can be stored in the front right pedestal.Some holes have likewise been drilled on the inside of the pedestal base to allow air to circulate so that a PC does not overheat. There is one hole at the base for electric cable to PC.
Whilst these works do change the originality of the desk, they most certainly make the desk more functional and more practical for modern living and practical usage. What point is there owning a Suite like this if you are not going to use it daily???
Price reduced to reflect cost of restoration.

Price: $50,000.00 for the FULL SET
