Footnotes

  • John Kendell & Co of Leeds introduced a labelling system for furniture produced from the 1830's. As in this example the labels often show the workman's name alongside the stock number. Unfortunately the firm's records have not been found, so the original commission cannot be identified. In 1863 the firm was taken over by the well-known cabinet makers firm, Marsh & Jones. See G.Beard & C.Gilbert, Dictionary of English Furniture 1660-1840, p.505.
