About C. Hindley & Sons:
Charles Hindley & Sons were established at 31 & 32 Berners Street, London, as carpet and rug manufacturers, later taking over the Oxford Street cabinet-makers Miles & Edwards in 1844. The company was a noted furniture-maker, receiving a Royal Warrant of Appointment and a place at the 1851 Great Exhibition.
Condition and Details of Restoration:
This item is in original structural condition and is completely sound. The polish has been revived and the brass handles cleaned, by our own craftsmen, by hand in the traditional manner. There are some minor marks and scratches under the polish, but all extremely minor in this case; in our opinion the photos are representative.
