[Cabinet-makers] Mess.rs Morgan & Sanders, Catherine St. Strand.
No.8, of Ackermann's Repository of Arts &c. Pub. Augt. 1st 1809, at 101 Strand London.
Fine hand coloured engraving. Sheet 145 x 235mm (5¾ x 9¼").
Specialists in the manufacture of “metamorphic” furniture, upholsterers and cabinet-makers Thomas Morgan and Joseph Sanders operated the highly successful firm of Morgan & Sanders. The firm flourished between 1801 and 1820. Sanders was a highly innovative designer, patenting designs and improvements to “The Metamorphic Library Chair,” “The Imperial Dining Table” and “Merlin’s Mechanical Chair.” They marketed aggressively, advertising in both London and provincial newspapers, and supplied furniture to not only the hero of the time, Lord Horatio Nelson, but enjoyed Royal patronage, as well. Much of what the company designed can be called campaign furniture, and they crafted furniture of “transportable comfort” aimed at the Army and Navy markets. In fact, both the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich and the Royal Naval Museum shows examples of their work. After the death of Joseph Sanders in 1818, the company was renamed Morgan & Co. and sold to their foreman, John Durham, in 1820. Numbered 'Plate 10. Vol. 2.' upper right, from Rudolph Ackermann's 'Repository of Arts' periodical, published from 1809-1829. A series of the firm’s designs were published in the magazine between 1809 until 1815. The formal title of the publication was "Repository of Arts, Literature, Commerce, Manufactures, Fashions, and Politics", and it discussed and illustrated day to day life, and influenced English taste in fashion, architecture and literature.

The arms of the Comb-Makers of London, with three combs, a lion, and an elephant as a reference to their use of ivory. The Company was incorporated by Charles I in 1636. Various craft guilds were established in London as early as the 12th century, later becoming known as City Livery Companies because they often wore a distinctive livery or uniform (although the Comb-makers' Company had no livery or Hall). The companies decided who could work or trade in their crafts, controlling prices and wages, working conditions and welfare. In return for exercising rigorous quality control they received monopoly powers. In continental Europe, various revolutions in the 18th and 19th centuries swept away the guilds, but in England they continued, and several new Companies have appeared in recent years. From "Londons Armory Accuratly delineated in a Graphical display of all the Arms, Crests, Supporters, Mantles and Motto’s of every distinct Company and Corporate Societie in the Honourable City of London".

Engraving. 89 x 178mm. 3½ x 7". Cut.
George Bickham, who in The Universal Penman, published in parts between 1733 and 1741, gathered together examples of contemporary handwriting by all the best masters of the day, and produced one of the most splendid of English copy books. The end of the 17th century saw the beginning of a new era. With the increase of trade at home, and with English merchant shipping penetrating to ever-more-distant parts of the globe, there was a need for more and more clerks and accountants. In the busy world of commerce, what was most necessary was a good clear hand, easily learnt and easily read. So that, after the great variety of styles prevalent earlier, the English round-hand, a composite form which at its best was both practical and legible, became supreme. This hand, carried round the world by bills of lading, letters of credit and other commercial documents, gave the 18th century English writing masters a position in society.

A cherry seller gives a bunch to two small boys, while a young drayman stands nearby. This is one of thirteen plates in Wheatley’s ‘Cries of London’, the most famous version of a popular theme in English printmaking. The shouts and songs of the street traders advertising their wares were a part of city life and inspired a number of artists of different styles, from these idealised scenes to the more raucous caricatures drawn by Rowlandson. Francis Wheatley (1747-1801) exhibited fourteen painted ‘Cries’ at the Royal Academy between 1792-5, with enough success for Colnaghi to commission some of the best engravers in England, including brothers Luigi and Niccolo Schiavonetti, Giovanni Vendramini & Thomas Gaugain to reproduce thirteen of the series in stipple. These were available as separate prints or as a set and were a great success (even abroad, as denoted by the French version of the titles), and have remained popular to this day.
