Grimes, John & Thomas (1795-1823)

Grimes, John & Thomas

69–70 Red Lion St, Camberwell, London, cabinet maker and upholder (1795–1823) 

From 1795–1800 the business is listed as Grimes, Dawes & Co. but from 1801 as John & Thomas Grimes. From 1813 the business appears to have been in the sole control of John Grimes. One of their specialist lines was the manufacture of medicine chests. A labelled example is illustrated in Gilbert (1996), figs 453-454.
