This magnificent desk was used by Arthur Watts in his office at Watts of Lydney. Founded in 1851, the business started as a general store and bakery. David’s son Josiah borrowed £300 from an uncle and added a small ironmongery shop to the business. With the ironmongery needs of Lydney's busy docks, railway and tin plate works and through the entrepreneurial skills of Josiah and his wife Clara, the business grew, and by 1905 their son Arthur, and later, John joined the business. Building on success, a Ford Motor Dealership was also added to the business in 1912 and in 1919 Watts opened Lydney's first garage. Both Arthur and John served in First World War and on their return to Lydney, Arthur converted, repaired and sold surplus war vehicles and Watts grew through the 20th and into the 21st Century and today its interests include a large commercial property portfolio, Polyurethane & Ultrathane manufacturing, and a large truck dealership.
