    Labelled London Furniture

    The Geffrye has a small but historically significant collection of 18th and early 19th century London furniture bearing labels or inscriptions relating to their supply. The vast majority of surviving pieces of middling furniture from that period are undocumented. The names of the makers and owners are now unknown. These rare labelled pieces are, therefore, of great importance for the study of the production, retailing and consumption of London furniture.
