Further information

Thomas Wilson is recorded as a furniture broker and appraiser (1821-1829) and is probably the same Thomas Wilson recorded as an auctioneer at 28 Great Queen Street (1799-1825). It is thought that Wilson was a dealer in second hand furniture who used his stamp as a mean of identification and it has been been found on pieces also stamped by the firm of Gillows as well as pieces with a clear 18th century origin. One labelled piece has been recorded and suggests that the firm may well have had a cabinet making division. The business was continued by Mary Wilson after Thomas' death in 1838.
