Wright & Mansfield, the partnership of Alfred Wright, a cabinet maker and Thomas Mansfield, a decorator, were one of the finest makers of marquetry furniture in London, working from circa 1860 to 1886. They were established at 3 Great Portland Street, and subsequently moved to 104 New Bond Street, London, until they closed in 1886.
Despite their comparatively short commercial career they were the leading exponents of Adam and Sheraton Revival furniture of their time, and produced some spectacular furniture.
