Edwards & Roberts
England Worked from: 1845 Worked until: 1899 Edwards & Roberts, was one of the principal London companies working in the nineteenth century in the taste of the late Eighteenth Century. They started business in 1845 and by 1854 were trading as 'Edwards & Roberts, 21 Wardour Street, Antique and Modern Cabinet Makers and Importers of Ancient Furniture'. Wardour Street became an important furniture retailing area in the second half of the Nineteenth Century. Contemporary documents note '... a fine and complete library of the works of the old designers...' (i.e. Chippendale, Adam, Hepplewhite and Sheraton)...'is to be seen at Messrs. Edwards & Roberts'. Edwards & Roberts ceased trading in 1899 having been at various addresses. The addresses provide an accurate guide to the date of various pieces as they are normally incorporated on the maker's label. It appears that the firm not only retailed new furniture but also sold antique items, stamping their name on furniture that passed through their workshops.
