The firm was active at Victoria Works, 57 Tower Street, St. George’s, Birmingham. Show rooms were opened at 13 Charterhouse Street, Holborn Circus, London and 73 West Nile Street, Glasgow. In circa 1905 the firm was converted to John Grinsell & Sons Ltd which was later purchased by Barker Ellis & Co Ltd. The trade mark “Cupid standing on a scroll” was registered in 1879.
