Edwards & Roberts was founded in 1845, and by 1854 were trading as ‘Edwards & Roberts, Antique and Modern Cabinet Makers and Importers of Ancient Furniture’. By the late 19th century Edwards & Roberts was one of the leading firms of English cabinetmakers. They produced furniture designs of the times, as well as reproductions of earlier French and English styles, and their name is associated with high quality workmanship and materials, specialising in marquetry, inlay and ormolu. They also retailed many items of second-hand furniture, so an Edwards & Roberts stamp does not necessarily mean that the item was made by them.
