    Jackson and Graham were prestigious 19th century London cabinet makers. Renowned for pieces of exceptional quality, Jackson and Graham expanded their Oxford Street premises and were active between 1836 and 1885, eventually being bought out by Collinson & Lock in 1885. The use of ivory inlay, contrasting ebonised surfaces, and exceptional quality of the cabinet making all point to the work of Jackson and Graham.
