M.P. Levene of Kensington - were established in 1889 by Pierre Levene who opened a shop in nearby Fulham Road, selling watches, jewellery, silverware and general objects d'art.

In 1926 - the shop was destroyed by enemy action in the early days of the Second World War. Meanwhile their son, Maurice Pierre Levene, who was born in 1900, had opened his own shop, M.P. Levene Ltd, at 5 Thurloe Place in 1926. He specialised in silverware and rare postage stamps.

In 1956 Maurice's son, Colin, joined the business in 1953 and is now Managing Director. In 1973 he acquired the next-door premises, 4 Thurloe Place, and amalgamated the two areas into the shop which exists till today.

In 1997, Colin’s son Martin joined, becoming the fourth generation Levene in the family firm.

The company is still successfully trading till today.
