James Harry Green and his wife Anne started our family business in 1911. This was in the era when all cabinet furniture was made to order by local craftsmen.

Design was discussed and plans drawn before work commenced in our own workshops.

Today, of course, we buy most of our furniture from the best of British suppliers that we consider give us quality, design and value for money. We stock quality Upholstery from Sherborne, Vale and Alstons. Dining & Lounge Furniture from Morris, White & Newton and Sutcliffes. Beds and Mattresses from Myers, Sweet Dreams and Staples amongst others.We have one of the best displays of quality furniture and beds in the Bolton area.

Moorcroft Pottery was first introduced into the shop by Anne Green, who wanted it to enhance the furniture displays, and she was one of William Moorcroft’s earliest customers.

James’ son Harry, who specialized in carving and was a noted local craftsman and teacher, continued the retail business. You may have seen his work in many North West churches and can be identified by a carved wooden snail (slow but sure) hidden amongst his work. His wife, Dorothy, ran a separate business of prams and baby goods, in adjoining premises.

Today, Harry’s son David and his wife Jean carry the business forward and are proud to be celebrating their Centenary in 2011.  David continues the family tradition of cabinet making with specialist commissions, although now on a more reduced scale, as the furniture sold is now from a modern retail-furnishing store.

Moorcroft Pottery still continues to play a large part in the shops’ business and we are one of the largest stockists in the North West. We always have a range of Retired and Collectors Pieces available to view.We also stock a wide range of Poole Pottery.
