James Plucknett formed a partnership with Frederick Collier in the 1860s and maintained a showroom in Leamington Spa with workshops in Warwick where Ambrose Heal was an apprentice. Accepting commissions from clients across the country and from families local to Warwickshire today they are today most recognized for the furniture they made for one William Gibbs and his country house, now National Trust; Tyntesfield. Of particular note is the bathroom furnished for the lady of the house; Matilda Blanche Gibbs.
