Trapnell and Gane, Bristol cabinet makers (1824-1954)  

Trapnell and Co. was founded by Henry Trapnell in Host Street, Bristol in 1824. They specialised in making high quality furniture for royal and establishment commissions. During the 19th century, Henry Trapnell's sons William and Caleb built up the business, expanding their premises in St.James's Barton, Queen's Street, St.Michael's and Barrs Street, St.Paul's, and in 1860, to College Green.  They worked with some of the leading furniture designers of the time, and exhibited at both the Great Exhibition and the Paris Exhibition.

Towards the end of the century,  a long standing employee of the business, Philip Endres Gane,  joined as a partner, and the company became a limited company, Trapnell and Gane.  In 1909 Philip Endres Gane became the sole proprietor of the business, He also took it in a new direction, moving away from royal and establishment commissions towards a more modern vision with a focus on quality Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveau furniture. In the 1930s Gane collaborated with Marcel Breuer. The company's premises were destroyed during WWII, and they were forced to close their doors.
