Shapland & Petter

In 1854 Barnstable-based Henry Shapland, cabinet maker and advocate of American machine production, employed Henry Petter, businessman, as a travelling salesman in his fledgling company.  By 1865 they were partners and Shapland & Petter was born, soon to become one of the largest and finest cabinet makers in the country.  During the late nineteenth and early twentieth century they developed a distinctive Arts & Crafts style that was retailed nationwide through Liberty’s and other department stores.  The outbreak of the First World War effectively ended the company’s heyday.
