Phene jnr & Rickett (1807-1814)

Phene jnr & Rickett

20, 21, 22 New Broad Street and 20 Broker's Row, Moorfields, London, upholsterer (fl. 1807–14)

Phene was almost certainly the son of Nicholas Phene. This appears to have been a separate business from that of Phene's father through the close proximity of the Broker's Row premises suggests co-operation.

Phene appears to have re-entered his father's business some time between 1814 and 1817, from which date they traded as Phene & Son, and in 1819 Phene & Sons. The New Broad Street premises were being used by Nicholas Phene in 1821. The trade card of Phene & Rickett [Landauer Collection, Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY] indicates that like many upholsterers they also acted as undertakers and appraisers.
