Edwards & Roberts were founded in 1845. Their premises were 21 Wardour Street, London. They occupied more than a dozen buildings in Wardour Street by 1892, and successfully continued to trade there until the end of the Century.
Edwards & Roberts became one of the most leading cabinet makers and retailers in London, with a variety of styles including modern and revivalist. They also restored furniture on the premises. They specialised in marquetry inlay and ormolu, and there are many examples of their earlier furniture with later embellishments bearing their stamp “Edwards & Roberts”.
Wardour Street became an important furniture retailing area in the second half of the 19th Century. The firm carried a fine and complete library of the old desigers i.e Chippendale, Hepplewhite, Sheraton and Adam.
