These illustrious furniture specialists were started in 1819 as cabinetmakers and upholsterers at 18 Old Bond Street and later at the City Auction Mart in Quiet Street, Bath. They had an enviable reputation for supplying high quality furniture and carpets from their original four storey building. Later still they became owners of Chick’s Depository in Paddington, London.
