The Epstein Company was founded in London in the 1890s by Morris Epstein. He and two of his sons, the 'Epstein brothers' (Harry and Lou), were designers and producers of Art Deco furniture from the 1930s-1950s. They were recognized as among the finest in the British Art Deco style. Many of their items were custom made with most of their pieces being produced from bleached walnut. Harry and Lou along with their brothers David, Michael and Sidney had showrooms in London, Manchester and Glasgow.
