As the owner of a fine London home during the early reign of Queen Victoria, a person of note would certainly have ‘Druce & Co’ on their list of places to shop for furniture needs.
Thomas Charles Druce collated and displayed fine furniture from skilled makers throughout the globe. His son, Herbert, was an integral part of the business – taking over the running in 1864 when Thomas passed away.
With a keen eye for quality, the Druce & Co company traded successfully throughout the Victorian and Edwardian eras, the Great War, and into WW2 when, on 8th December 1940, their building suffered extensive damage following a German bombing raid, the warehouse stock of bedding, furniture, carpets and antiques was largely destroyed. Druce & Co. continued to trade further down the road until 1956.
