Druce & Co were renowned antique furniture cabinet makers and furniture restorers based in Baker street London. They would make, upholster and restore furniture for the wealthy clientele throughout the Victorian era. Druce & Co was established Thomas Charles Druce and his son, Herbert Druce took over the business in 1864 when Thomas Druce passed away.
Druce & Co was listed in the Marylebone Trade Directory of 1853 as ‘Furnishers, Upholsterers and Upholders for clients of discernment’.
Druce & Co furniture was one of the most well known furnishers in the UK throughout the Victorian and Edwardian periods but unfortunately during the World war, German bombers destroyed most their building and stocks so they ended their business.
