Gudgeon, Robert & Sons (1812-1884)

Gudgeon, Robert & Sons

Winchester, Hampshire; cabinet makers, upholsterers, appraisers and auctioneers (1812–1884).

Robert Gudgeon & Son was recorded at Piazza in 1823 and 114 High Street, 1830–39. In November 1812 they announced Gudgeon took over the premises formerly occupied by a Mr Mercer. He claimed to have worked ‘at one of the first houses in the metropolis’ and stated that he was able to fit up ‘Drawing-rooms, Saloons, and Boudoirs … in the first style of elegance and fashion’. He also indicated his need for an apprentice ‘of respectable connections’ from whom a premium would be expected [Hampshire Courier, 30 November 1812]. 

The partnership was dissolved in 1884 [The Furniture Gazette, 9 August 1884].
