Coach Builder's Drawing

WALPOLES
A coach builder's drawing for a single Brougham by Holmes & Co., London (38 Margaret Street) and Derby. Pen and ink with coach builder's paint on card. Within an ebonized pine frame with pressed brass bosses at the corners. English circa 1840.
11.5 in x 8 in
The first brougham was commissioned in 1837 by Henry Peter Brougham (1778-1868). He wanted “a refined and glorified street cab which would make a convenient carriage for a gentleman”. Lord Brougham's regular coach builder rejected the commission and so it fell to another, Robinson & Cook, to develop the concept which was named the Brougham with the express permission of his lordship. This cab was an instant success, being built in vast numbers and rapidly becoming the preferred choice of professional and middle classes as well as being used as an everyday carriage by the wealthy and aristocratic.

Walpoles is an antiques business that has been established for more than 35 years with an extensive stock which can be divided into three broad themes: "The Army" encompassing colonial furniture and works of art, folk art of the British soldier as well as campaign furniture, pictures and objects of a military theme; "The Navy" covering fine and folk art associated with the British Royal and Merchant Navy fleets as well as fine art and objects that fall under a title of "The China Trade"; and finally there is an established core of furniture, pictures and works of art typical of "The English Country House".

Founded by Graham Walpole, the business first set up in Church Street, in London’s Marylebone, and by the end of the 1980s had moved to Westbourne Grove, from where they dealt until the turn of the last century. In 2004 Walpoles relocated to their home town of Greenwich and joined the British Antiques Dealers Association but now work from 111 Portobello Road. Please be aware that this shop is too small to show all of the stock on the website and that you should make an enquiry before your journey to ensure that the item in question is there for you to see.
