Flodberg, Nils (1763-71)

Flodberg, Nils

Little St Martin's Lane, London; cabinet maker (fl.1763-71)

Son of Nils Flodberg (d.1765), a cabinet maker in Stockholm. Nils Flodberg junior probably moved to London shortly before 6 November 1763, possibly on the recommendation of his brother-in-law Israel Millman (1723-86), when he took communion at the Swedish Church. In 1764 he was a witness at the marriage of Pierre Langlois’s daughter and Dominique Jean, bronze-founder, in London. From the records he is identified as a cabinet maker living in London. He is named in the list of furniture makers and ebensistes in London and Paris compiled by the Duchess of Northumberland, c. 1767. Flodberg married in Rotterdam in 1768 and had three children in London over the next three years.
