Amongst their principal clients were the Royal Society of Edinburgh, The Scottish National Portrait Gallery, for whom they provided several museum display cases and bookcases for the Council Rooms at a cost of just over £1000 between 1859 and 1860. In 1850, J & T Scott also provided the furniture for the meeting room in 1, North Charlotte Street, Edinburgh, for the Trustees/Governors of the magnificent Donaldson’s Hospital, designed by William Henry Playfair and completed in 1852.
In the County Directory of 1872, J & T Scott were advertisers of Billiard Tables which, as they said, ‘in every detail they cannot be surpassed’. James Whitehead (born in 1819) was listed in Scottish censuses as a cabinet-maker from 1841 and, in particular, as a chair-maker between the years of 1871 and 1891.
