  • I have a linen press embossed with ‘James Winter and son, 101 Wardour Street, Soho London’
    Would you be interested in purchasing this item?

  • I have a James Winter and Sons armoire and am asking if you can tell me anything about this piece. I know they went out of business in 1870 but beyond that I know very little. It is in pristine condition. I hope you have a few minutes to provide any insight into the piece or can guide me to someone in your firm who may be able to help.

    Best regards

    • Hi
      There is not much more information other than what is on this blog page unfortunately. They did make some amazing pieces and always used high quality timbers. Regarding help with your armoire, I would need to see a few images to help. We do not offer a valuation service but i might be able to help with dates etc.
      Many thanks
