Hampton and Sons Antique Furniture

Hampton and Sons

Hampton and Sons were cabinet makers of Antique Furniture and were first established in ca. 1830 by William Hampton. He opened his first shop selling General household to more fine furniture in Cranbourn Street, in London. In 1869 Williams Two sons George and William joined his business and they expended and moved to the larger premises 8 Pall Mall, London.

Hampton and Sons furnished some impressive properties and boats from the Royal Yacht Britannia, the Queen Elizabeth and Queen Mary, the Theatre Royal of Drury Lane, the Duke of York Theatre, the Dorchester and the Mayfair Hotels and the palaces of two Indian princes, the Nizam of Hyderabad & the Maharajah of Kashmir.

Hampton and Sons had a few disasters throughout its history, it suffered a major fire in 1890 but they re-established and went to expand their business further. They bought several cabinet making firms starting with James Coulson and Co of Lisburn, Northern Ireland in 1898, and then Goodall, Lamb and Highway of King Street, Manchester and Robson and Sons Ltd of Newcastle-upon-Tyne (all very prestigious cabinet makers throughout history).

In 1926 Hampton and Sons opened a factory at Ingate Place, Battersea but in 1940 a bomb hit the Pall Mall premises and most of the building was destroyed. Because of this they decided to buy a controlling interest in the firm of Storey & Co Ltd of Kensington High Street where they established their new headquarters.

    • Hi
      I would need to look at the chair to determine the age. If it is by Hampton and sons in this design, then it is probably late 19th Century.
      Many thanks

  • I have an antique ladies writing desk with the makers mark reading ‘Hampton & sons London’ but no pall mall. It is mahogany and has hand carved patterns in it. Is it likely to be pre 1869? I can send some photo’s but away atm.
