They created high quality furniture producing pieces with fine marquetry work using rare woods and good quality mounts.
Many pieces were exhibited in the International exhibitions of the time and their clients included Queen Victoria and Napoloeon III.
In 1885 the company was taken over by Collinson & Lock.
