An Antique Georgian Centre Table Firmly Attributed to Morel & Seddon
c. 1825 England
Offered by Butchoff
The largest furniture manufactory in London, founded in 1753, by the end of the 18th century it employed more people, held larger stocks and produced a wider range of pieces than any other furniture making business, occupying a two acre site in Aldersgate until 1826. A visit to the factory is discussed in her book ‘Travels in England’ by Sophie Von La Roche, published in 1786; she mentions he was a ‘foster-father’ to 400 apprentices, and speaks at length of the carvers, gilders, locksmiths, bronze casters etc as well as wood, materials, curtains & etc. He took his sons into the partnership, in turn taking in their sons and grandsons, undertaking many Royal Commissions including Windsor Castle. The company ceased to trade in 1868
